At Orchard Valley Counselling Services we believe that our fees should be fair and reflect the professional level of the counselling services that our clients receive. As part of this we have carefully considered the costs of providing counselling services in the Kelowna and West Kelowna area, as well as the costs of other comparable service providers. We also believe that the fees should be flexible so that as many clients as possible are able to afford the help that they need and the counselling services we provide.
Our current rate for couples or marriage counselling is $130/ 5omins. Social Work counselling fees are Tax Exempt so no tax will be charged to the client. Seniors 65years+, part-time and full-time students are also eligible for a reduced rate. Please refer to our Senior and Student fee section.
All of our fees are in accordance with the recommended fee guidelines set forth by the BC Association of Social Workers. We may also offer a sliding fee scale for those who are having significant financial hardship, in an effort to make our counselling services affordable and accessible to clients that are in need.
Our couples counselling fees also include the full service of our administration team who are available to answer phone calls, respond to emails, assist with answering questions about our services, or anything else that may make the overall process as seamless and easy as possible.
*Please Note: If there is suspected abuse of any kind by either partner, the counsellor reserves the right to schedule separate appointments to determine if there are any safety concerns. Additionally, there may be other reasons that separate counselling sessions may be recommended for couples but this will be discussed prior to the appointment time or determined at the time of the counselling session.
How Do I Make Payment?
Payment is required either in advance of the first booked counselling appointment or at the conclusion of all counselling sessions. For your convenience, Orchard Valley Counsellors are able to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, cash or email money transfers in payment for all sessions.
