Our standard rates span a range of $80-$180 per hourly session and are dependent on which therapist you are working with.  

The following is our standard rates based on therapist experience and designation:

Couples and family work may sometimes require or benefit from longer sessions. The cost of these sessions are prorated based on the hourly rate and is discussed prior to first session.  

We offer compassionate rates (sliding fee scale*) and Pro Bono sessions (with Student Therapists) for clients who require additional financial accommodations. Please take a look at our Therapist-in-Training Program for more details about working with our Student Therapists.

Compassionate Rates (Sliding Scale)

Piece of Mind Counselling makes sure each therapist holds compassionate rate spots in their schedules, this helps us ensure that our client’s get to work with the right fit therapist. The reduced hourly rate is reflective of a potential client’s situation, enabling sessions to become more accessible.  

Our therapists offer a range of rates to allow affordable access to therapy services. As they can vary, compassionate rates are typically not listed on therapist’s websites or profiles; thus, calling in can give you the opportunity to see if it is available.  

Although negotiating rates is not always comfortable, there is no harm in asking! Speak to our Care Coordinators or to the therapist during your consult or first session to inquire about a sliding scale option; through doing so, you are given the opportunity to lessen your stress of managing the costs of therapy.  

Every therapist at Piece of Mind Counselling offers compassionate rates. We do this to ensure that we can get our clients the best fit. However, therapists do have limited compassionate rate spots – this may mean you might be waitlisted or offered alternative therapists who may have current availability and be a good fit for you. 

*Limited compassionate rates available on a case-by-case basis. Documentation may be required.
