1. Why would I make an appointment to see a Psychologist?
If your personal difficulties are interfering with your daily life, it may be time to seek professional assistance. Although speaking with family and friends may be supportive, psychologists are specifically trained to be objective, non-judgmental and provide you with options to help problem solve and better cope with your situation.
2. How do I arrange an appointment?
At Carleen Hall Psychological Services referrals from other professionals are accepted (i.e. doctors, lawyers, social workers, physiotherapists) but not always necessary. Clients are encouraged to call our office and arrange an appointment that works for their schedule.
3. Is there a fee for these appointments?
Unfortunately MSI does not cover the cost of seeing a psychologist in the private practice field. However insurance agencies such as Blue Cross, Great West Life, Manu-Life, Sun-Life, Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) oftentimes will provide funds for these services.
A typical psychological appointment is approximately 50 minutes in duration. The cost is $210 per appointment for individual therapy. The fees associated with psychological assessments vary. These costs are discussed during the first scheduled appointment.
Various forms of payment methods are accepted such as cash, debit, Visa and Mastercard but not personal cheques.
