​​Counselling Fees


What About Counselling Fees?


At the Door of Hope Counselling Clinic we believe that our fees should be fair and reflect the professional level of the counselling services that clients receive. As part of this, we have carefully considered the costs of providing counselling services in the Port Coquitlam area which is comparable with other service providers.

All of our fees are in accordance with the recommended fee guidelines set forth by the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association (CPCA) and the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC).


The following are the various counselling services we offer and its fees:


Individual Counselling Fees - $135 per 50 Minute Session

Couple, Marriage, and Family Counselling Fees - $150 per 50 Minute Session

                                                                                       - $225 per 90 Minute Session 

Practicum Student Therapist Fees - $60 per 50 Minute Session


Beginning September 2018, we will have a Practicum Student Therapist who will provide Professional Counselling Services at the reduced rate. The Practicum Student Therapist will be directly supervised by the Door of Hope Counselling Clinic Executive Director and Clinical Supervisor. This is one of the ways we can make our counselling services more affordable to our community. No Application for Fee Reduction will be required for those who would like to see the Practicum Student Therapist. The only thing required is to call 604-790-9032 or email info@doorofhopecounselling.comto make payment and book your first appointment.


The regular counselling fees for these clients who will be seeing our Practicum Student Therapist will be $60 dollars per 50-minute session. However, to support our Practicum Program Initiative, we have established a promotional package of eight (8) professional counselling sessions at $40 dollars per 50-minutes each session; a total of $320 dollars per eight (8) sessions. This will be a savings of $160.

This package will be available to the first 10 clients who contact the Door of Hope Counselling Clinic, at 604-790-9032 or email info@doorofhopecounselling.com to pay and book his / her first appointment. If any of these 10 clients who purchased the promotional package decide to continue their counselling sessions—with their Practicum Intern Therapist—after they have used their eight (8)promotional sessions, they will be required to pay the regular counselling session fees of $60 per 50-minute session.


Group Counselling Fee Per Person

We are currently developing various Support Groups that will address a variety of life issues and challenges such as:


          (a) anxiety;                    (e) co-dependency;

          (b) depression;             (f) boundaries;

          (c) grief;                         (g) addictions.

          (d) trauma;


We will keep our website updated as to the start date of each of these Support Groups. For further information, please contact us at 604-790-9032 or info@doorofhopecounselling.com.


Reduced Counselling Fees - Practicum Student Therapist


In order to meet the emotional needs of our community we also offer a Sliding Scale Fee for clients who would like to see a Licensed Therapist. The Sliding Scale Fee is our effort to make our counselling services affordable to as many clients as possible. Fees range on a sliding scale beginning at $90 per session for Individual Counselling and $135 per session for Couple, Marriage and Family Counselling. 


At this time, we are no longer accepting the Application for Fee Reduction for those who would like to see a Licensed Therapist since we have already reached our maximum number of clients that have been offered counselling sessions at a reduced rate. We will keep our website updated as to when we will once again be accepting the Application for Fee Reduction.

How Do I Make Payment?

Payment is required in advance of the first booked counselling appointment as well as at the conclusion of all counselling sessions. For your convenience, the Door of Hope Counselling Clinic is able to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, cash, and personal check for payment for all sessions.


Will Insurance Cover My Counselling?

Many people have access to extended health insurance plans through their employers and have counselling coverage as part of their plan. You may be able to use these benefits to cover all or part of the costs of counselling.

First, you will need to check with your particular insurance company and group plan to ensure exactly what type and amount of coverage you have. The plans differ dramatically from one to another so that even within a specific insurance company there will be many different types of coverage.

You will need to ensure that your coverage provides for counselling services provided by a Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling-Supervisor (MPCC-S) or a Registered Professional Counsellor (RPC). If you have this type of coverage you simply need to provide the receipt that you get from the Door of Hope Counselling Clinic to your insurance company and they will reimburse you at the rate outlined in your plan. 

What If I Don’t Have Coverage For An RPC, MPCC-S?

If your insurance plan does have counselling coverage but does not acknowledge the professional counselling services of a Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling-Supervisor (MPCC-S) or a Registered Professional Counsellor (RPC), it may be possible to have your employer make a small change to the insurance plan.

You may wish to speak directly with your Human Resources department and ask that they make an amendment to the company extended benefits plan. Most employers like to increase the amount of benefits that their employees can access, especially when it does not cost the employer any additional fee.

It may also be helpful to craft a letter to your Human Resources department making the request to alter the counselling coverage. Please use the link below of a sample letter that you can use to write a letter to your Human Resources Department.
