FEES & INSURANCE – AB
INVEST IN YOUR MENTAL HEALTH
Investing in your mental well-being is just simply good practice. Sometimes seeing a qualified therapist for a brief amount of time is all it takes to realign ourselves and feel on track again. Other times, on-going or regularly scheduled therapy may be required over a longer period. Whatever the case, investing in good mental health can be an excellent part of a whole health regimen.
Our rates are in line with the fee guide schedule provided by the Psychological Association of Alberta (PAA).
Our fees are based on 50 minute sessions and are as follows:
Individual session – $220
SLIDING FEE SCALE
Head Coach Psychology does not have an active sliding fee scale in place at this time.
INSURANCE & POLICIES
Psychological services are often covered by workplace insurance, private insurance or health spending accounts. A portion of psychological fees may be eligible for reimbursement. It is always best to consult with your provider directly concerning what is and is not covered, specifically regarding coverage for a Registered Psychologist.

Frequently Asked Questions
Head Coach Psychology
Are your services covered by insurance?
Psychological counselling services in Kelowna, BC and Alberta are usually covered under personal or workplace benefit packages. Please check with your provider for details.
How will I know if it's the right fit?
Like with any relationship, comfort and compatibility are key. It has been well documented that a strong therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is an integral part of success in therapy. That being said, some parts of therapy can be difficult. We cannot promise you it will be easy. What we can tell you though, is that it will be worth it.
Usually one or two sessions is enough time to determine if working together will be a good fit. Sometimes a therapist and a client come together and for reasons unknown to either, it just doesn't feel right. Although uncommon, this does happen and professional referrals can be made at that time.
How does the process work?
To begin, we'd book a 50-minute session. During this meeting, we would go through a general assessment which consists of questions regarding your personal and familial history. From there, we would discuss your current situation and determine where you are and where you eventually want to be. Subsequent sessions would involve a discussion around treatment recommendations and forming a plan moving forward. Therapy plays out differently for everyone. Some people find a few sessions every once in a while to be very helpful, while others feel ongoing sessions fit their needs better.
It's Good To Talk.
