Often, people think the only time we need a Counsellor is when we are in crisis!
Although we need help during that time, it is recommended to have a “go-to” person you can call on to get an appointment right away! At SMB Counselling, once you are a client, we will fit you in when you need us! You will be surprised at where a conversation can bring you.
We have a two week guarantee, which means we will schedule your initial appointment within two weeks!
All mental health professionals that hold a provincial license to practice, can be referred as either a Counsellor or Therapist! Whether someone holds a Masters’ degree in Social Work or Masters’ degree in Counselling, all are Counsellors/Therapists.
You can choose on line, in person, or blended! You can even choose to go for a walk after your initial session if you prefer. We are not a traditional counselling team. We want our clients to feel at ease when they come for counselling; we meet the client where they are at in their wellness journey!
Because each person has different issues and goals for counselling, it will be different depending on the individual. We will tailor our therapeutic approach to your specific needs.
Sessions are generally 50 minutes.
Payments are due prior to the time of the appointment by etransfer or credit card. You can upload your credit card in your client portal, which will be provided to you once you have booked an appointment with us!
Unfortunately, we do not direct bill but will gladly provide you with a receipt for submission to your individual insurance company.
Sessions range from $130- $160, depending on the practitioner.
24 business hours notice is required for cancellations. The full hourly rate will be charged for any missed appointments without the full 24 business hours notice and will be paid prior to booking another therapy session.
We recommend you check your individual benefit plan, which varies from employer to employer. Ask whether Social Workers and Registered Counselling Therapists are covered!
