Clinical Counselling Program

Our Clinical Counselling Services are available to children, youth, adults, couples and families who wish to make positive changes in their lives. We believe that reaching out for help, connecting with others, and finding new ways of coping is a healthy way of dealing with life’s struggles. Our experienced counsellors work from various theoretical orientations and are able to help their clients work through many different issues. Our counsellors hold master’s degrees and are registered with various professional organizations.

The full fee for service is $110 per session hour (adult sessions are 50 minutes; play therapy sessions with adults and/or children are 40 minutes). Because of Family Services of the North Shore’s fundraising efforts, we are able to offer a reduced fee based on a sliding scale for clients living or working on the North Shore. Clients applying for the sliding scale fee will provide the intake counsellor with proof of income and information about the number of individuals supported by the income.

Payment for services must be made at the time of service, when a receipt is issued. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, or Visa/MasterCard. Third party coverage (e.g., extended health or Employee Assistance Programbenefits) may apply. Clients are responsible for researching or applying for any benefits. Please note that 24 hours notice is required for session cancellation, or the regular fee will be charged.


Sliding fee scale due to the support of United Way of the Lower Mainland and our donors.
