INVESTING IN YOUR FUTURE
Choosing to meet with a counsellor is an investment in your future as well as the future of those you love and interact with on a daily basis. In order to provide affordable options Real Life Counselling provides a discounted fee for those able to attend sessions beginning at 4pm or earlier on weekdays.
“Most of us spend money pretty freely on all sorts of things. Yet when we have mental or emotional struggles we shrink away because of the cost. In my opinion seeing a great counsellor like Cheryl Shea is worth every dime it costs and is well work the investment in time. It is amazing how one feels when they walk away from a session with a clear head and a plan in place.” – Edna, Learning to thrive through significant life transitions

WILL MY EXTENDED HEALTH BENEFITS COVER MY SESSIONS?
Please confirm with your health insurer to ensure they cover “counselling” specifically in your policy. Keep in mind that if your session will be covered you will need to submit your receipt to your insurer for reimbursement. If it is not covered in your health benefits package many companies provide “Health and Wellness Plans” that will cover counselling.
Keep in mind that accessing counselling services is an investment in you. This positive investment ripples out to your family, friends, workplace and community. Would you pay $650 to get your car fix? Certainly you would. A similar investment can change your life and positively impact those around you. Many plans only provide $500 per year maximum for Psychological services. In Alberta If your plan only covers “Psychologists” this will cover just over 2 sessions ($190x 2.5 = $475). On average people initially access 6 sessions to work through significant issues. This would leave you paying for an additional 3 sessions out of pocket.
At the end of the day the reasonable rates offered by Real Life Counselling Services would require the same investment as if you used your extended health care plan. And this is a more significant consideration if you wish to continue in your healing journey beyond 6 sessions.
