How much does counselling cost?

Are your services covered by extended health benefits?
Counselling with a Registered Psychotherapist or Registered Social Worker is usually covered by a majority of insurance plans. We have worked with clients who were covered by Manulife, Sun Life, Great-West life, Green Shield, Blue Cross and other insurance companies. Students at the University of Guelph, University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University can also take advantage of our counseling services as they are covered by their student benefits.
Each insurance company has different policies and so it’s hard to determine which plans cover what. To find out if your insurance plan covers therapy services, you can:
