Not everyone has the luxury of accessing extended health benefits or employee assistance programs that would help with counselling costs. Some of you may even find yourself in challenging seasons of life, such as unemployment and needing to still care for your loved ones. It’s these times when your mental health can suffer the most. One of the core values at Strive Counselling is to make therapy services more accessible and available to everyone – including you! If you are finding yourself in a difficult financial situation, please get in touch with us for a free consultation to inquire about our subsidized counselling rate, so we can get you the help that you need.
Reduced-cost counselling is solely reserved for those who are in challenging financial situations. To qualify for this subsidized rate, you will need to meet at least one of the following criteria:
- You are not employed or are inconsistently employed
- You do not have reliable financial support (i.e., spousal or family support)
- You do not have insurance or health benefits to cover the cost of counselling
- You are a student who does not have access to benefits or coverage – Most post-secondary institutions will include student health benefits that cover counselling though.
We understand that there are many unique circumstances, and encourage you to have a consult with one of our counsellors to determine eligibility.
