Lotus Rising Trauma Therapy

Costs and Investment

The recommendation of the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers is that individual counselling sessions with a Private Practice Social Worker are $175 per session.


​Our rates for service range between $160 and $200 for individual and couples' counselling. Please inquire with your individual provider during your personal consultation. 



Health Insurance Coverage

Many health insurance plans will pay a percentage of the session fee. 

Each plan has different stipulations about what they will cover, how much, and to what limit. 

Please contact your provider about your specific plan details, as your therapist does not have access to your personal plan information. 

Some key questions to ask your insurance provider may include: 


  • Does my plan cover the services of a Registered Social Worker approved by the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers as a Licensed Private Practitioner? 
  • How much coverage do I have each year? What are the beginning and end dates of each fiscal year?
  • Does my plan cover 100% of the amount or do I have to pay a portion of each visit?
  • Do I require a physician's referral to qualify for coverage? 
  • How do I submit my claim for reimbursement? 
  • Can my therapist direct bill? 



CRA Medical Tax Benefit


Please note: Clinical social work services may be claimed through the Medical Expense Credit (METC) on your Income Tax . Visit www.cra.gc.ca/medical to learn more about how to claim the METC.



Criminal Injuries Counselling Program


If you have been approved for this program, the Department of Justice will pay up to $85 per session as a subsidy to access counselling. As an individual, you are responsible for the remainder of the session costs.

This is for individuals who have filed a police report and have been given the application from the DOJ Victim Services for people who have been a victim of crime within the past year who is currently in the criminal justice system.
