How much does counselling cost?
The Counselling Service is partially funded by the Ministry of Social Development through Child, Youth and Family. Clients are asked to make a donation towards the cost of their session. Community Service Card Holders: $10 per session. Non Community Card Holders: sliding scale selected by client.
How many times will I need to see a counsellor?
New clients will be allocated up to six sessions. Extensions will be at the Counsellor's discretion. The frequency of sessions will be discussed between you and the Counsellor.
What happens in counselling?
Our trained Counsellors will firstly speak with you on the phone. They will identify a suitable time for you to come in and talk with them. The sessions are one on one and are strictly confidential between you and the Counsellor.
