Financial:

Clients are asked to help pay for this service. A sliding scale based on ability to pay is offered. We are grateful to the Government of British Columbia’s Gaming Fund for helping to cover the cost of our services for those who are involved in our Dialectical Behavioural Therapy programs.

In a travesty for which the government has given no explanation, our application for funding to subsidize other individual and group counselling programs was denied by the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, being directed instead to groups that did not meet the program requirements. We continue to press our case that this funding is life-saving and essential, particularly given the long waiting lists at Island Health (minimum six months) for ongoing mental health support.

Session payments:  We prefer payment by cash or cheque. Payment can also be made by e-transfer to office@islandintegratedcounselling.com. Donations to help those in need to receive needed services can be made by clicking on the “Donate” button at the top of the page.

Hours:

Monday through Saturday with both day-time and evening hours available. Counselling sessions are usually scheduled weekly or biweekly and are normally of about 50 – 60  minutes in duration.

Charitable Donations:

We are a Registered Charity that issues tax receipts.  We accept donations toward any of our programs and services. If you wish to make a difference to those in our community you can click on the Donate button to the right, or go to our donations page. You will receive a year-end tax receipt, acknowledging your generosity.

Your donations make a major difference! $400 can help subsidize an entire ten session course of therapeutic treatment. $100 can help turn a life around. Even $20 – $50 could help save a life! With the Government of BC abandoning mental health support for agencies such as ours in mid-Vancouver Island, the poorest of our clients need help from those who can give it.
