Important information regarding private psychological services:

1) Fees for private psychological services are not covered by Manitoba Health, but these fees may be covered by a private health insurance plan (e.g., Blue Cross).  Please check your insurance plan to determine if you have coverage for private psychological services and if you require a physician recommendation in order to reimbursed for the cost of services.  Please check with your plan as coverage varies across insurance providers.

2) Fees for services follow the guidelines of the Manitoba Psychological Society and are $195.00 / 50 min. session. 

3) Fees are payable at the time of the session, and may be paid by credit card or debit.  A receipt will be provided, which can be forwarded to an insurance plan for reimbursement or may be used for income tax purposes.

4) At the time of the initial appointment, policies regarding confidentiality and its exceptions and regarding cancellation and rescheduling will be reviewed.  

5) Typically, the first 1-2 sessions are focused on obtaining information in order to best understand each persons’ situation and concerns.  Following this, a plan for therapy can be developed (e.g., including goals for therapy, beneficial strategies).
