Many health insurance plans cover the cost of counselling with a Master Practitioner of Clinical Counselling, i.e. a professional counsellor or psychotherapist. Check your insurance policy to see if counselling with a "registered professional counsellor" or "registered professional psychotherapist" is covered. A "registered professional counsellor or psychotherapist" is not the same as a "registered psychologist." The following are some of the insurance companies/EAPs that have covered registered professional counsellors in the past;
Blue Cross, Great West Life, Manulife, Homewood Human Solutions, Shepell FGI Holman Group, WorkSafe BC, Community Living BC, Green Shield, PPCCanada and Sunlife.
A minimum of 48 hours notice is required if appointments are to be rescheduled or cancelled. Otherwise charges for the planned duration apply.
