What happens when I first meet my therapist or assessment specialist?
The initial meeting with your assessment specialist will lead to clarification about the assessment process including information about history taking, the tests being used and expectations during test administration. As well, the value of the test results in treatment or for assisting in other decisions affecting your life in the future will be explained before testing is started.
Is the process of assessing children comfortable for the child?
How long is a treatment session and what are the fees?
The cost of individual treatment is $190.00 per session and psychological assessments are 180.00 per hour. Report preparation, consultations and document review are charged out at $190.00 per hour. Psychologists are not covered by the medical services plan and for private patients the process is like the dental system. That is, you are responsible for the costs of treatment. However, you can receive assistance through extended health care programs if the coverage includes psychologists. For referrals for certain groups of people, (RCMP, Canadian Forces, Veteran’s Affairs, ICBC, Work BC) billing is made directly to the organization.
