Low-Cost Counselling Services

by Student Counsellors 

Our low-cost counselling services are specially designed to support individuals facing financial challenges.  

By combining affordability with professional expertise, we provide low-cost counselling services through our team of Student Counsellors who are currently completing the clinical portion of their Master’s Degrees.

The students selected to work at our clinic all display a high level of empathy and compassion. Each student is supervised by an approved supervisor affiliated with the BCACC as well as the Clinical Director. This ensures that you receive the highest quality of care throughout your counselling journey.

Some insurance plans cover the cost of Student Counsellors. If your benefits cover the cost of counselling with a Registered Clinical Counsellor, student sessions may be eligible. Coverage varies by provider, so we recommend always checking with yours prior to booking.
