At South Island Centre we know how important it is for everyone to have access to professional, affordable mental health counselling services when needed.  As a registered charity supported by various agencies and donors, we are able to provide some subsidized professional mental health services to those most in need.


Costs of Counselling

Counselling services at South Island Centre are calculated on an income-based fee of 0.1% of your gross income up to a maximum of $120.00 per session. Our minimum fee is $10.00 per session. Talk to your counsellor about your payment options and fees.

Please note cancellation fees are charged for missed appointments when less than 24 hours notice is given.

Payment can be made with cash, debit or credit card.

Insurance Coverage

If you have extended health benefits for professional mental health counselling services, you will not qualify for our subsidized rates until your deductible is met. Please inform your counsellor if you do.
It is your responsibility to submit receipts to your provider for reimbursement.
If you are waiting for an external agency to reimburse you as a result of a claim (i.e. Work BC, ICBC), you remain responsible for counselling payments until your settlement is reached.
We not bill external parties for services rendered.
