  • How does the sliding scale rate work?

    The sliding scale rate is available on a case-by-case basis determined by employment status, income, and/or disability. The sliding scale rate is only available with our Intern counsellors. Please discuss your eligibility directly with your counsellor.

  • Can I choose my counsellor, see a list of counsellors, and/or have a free consultation?

    We will add you to our waitlist, including contact information and any relevant information or requests. We will try to match you with a counsellor that meets your requests. If you find that your counsellor is not a good fit, let us know and we can transfer you to a different counsellor.

    We do not offer free consultations. However, you can request to briefly talk on the phone with your counsellor once your counsellor has reached out to you to book an intake appointment.

  • Will my insurance / extended health cover counselling?

    Maybe. The Adler Centre does not directly bill to insurance providers. We will provide you with receipts which you can then submit to your extended health provider. If you are planning to use extended health, please make sure to check with your provider to see what kind of coverage your plan provides.

    All Associate counsellors have an RCC (Registered Clinical Counsellor) or CCC (Canadian Certified Counsellor) credential. Our Interns are not registered counsellors but are under the clinical supervision of an RCC.

  • What are Masters level Intern counsellors?

    Our intern counsellors are unregistered graduate student counsellors completing their practicum placement with the Adler Centre as part of their Masters Degree. The interns come from various accredited universities, most often the University of British Columbia, City University, and Adler University. They are here for 8-12 months on average while they gain the necessary hours to become Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC).

  • Are all your counsellors Adlerian practitioners?

    No. While our clinic promotes Adlerian values of encouragement, social interest, and the human need to belong, it is not required that our counsellors have an Adlerian approach. For a list of Certified Adlerian Counselling Therapists (CAC), please see the Practitioners page.

  • Do you offer in-person or remote sessions?

    Yes. We offer in-person or remote sessions, including video and telephone.
