your first session

For many people, attending counselling for the first  time might be accompanied by a host of questions and uncertainty. Kayla works with her clients to describe what counselling can look like at the first session while highlighting how each client and counsellor relationship is inherently unique based on the needs of the client. At the first session, Kayla will explain two forms that need to be signed, the "Confidentially of Services" form and the "Fee Agreement" form. Clients are encouraged to ask any questions they might have about counselling during the first session and throughout the counselling process. 


cost and Payment options

A one hour individual counselling session is $120 plus GST and a one hour couples counselling session is $130 plus GST. Payment is due at the start of each session and can be made by exact cash, cheque, email transfer, or credit card. 

Group counselling rates are on a case by case basis. Please contact Kayla for more information. 



confidentuality 

Confidentiality is at the heart of counselling and enables an environment of trust between the counsellor and client. Kayla works within the ethical guidelines set forward by the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors to maintain client confidentiality. Please see the limits to confidentiality in the next section.
