The cost of therapy can vary greatly. Depending on the organisation, the area you live in, the counsellor, etc. Fees can range from free to $190 per hour.
At BCAP, we believe counselling should be accessible to everyone who needs it. Therefore we do our very best to keep our fees affordable, reasonable, and transparent.
Outlined below is our fee structure. Please consider it a guide, as we are always prepared to discuss your individual capacity to pay, and financial situation, and negotiate within reason.
Fees are based on one hour sessions. 30 and 45 minute sessions are also available by arrangement. As are longer sessions, two hour or half day sessions by arrangement.
All fees are GST inclusive.
Individual session... $99 ($60 with Health Care Card)
Family ... (three or more members) $160
We can come to you by prior arrangement. The fee for a home visit will depend on your location. Please be aware, this fee is based on our standard fee with the addition of time and travel. We can negotiate a fee, once all these parameters have been discussed.
It is becoming more and more common for organisations (workplaces, sporting clubs, social groups) to arrange group counselling for their members, staff or crew.
Workplaces, in particular, as employers understand the benefits of a supportive and preventative approach to mental health for their workforce.
This type of group counselling process provides a sounding board for employees. Allowing them a safe place to openly discuss issues and challenges that trouble them in the work environment.
Depending on the size of your group and your location, group session fees range between $20 and $40 per person, per one hour session.
