Income-Based Counselling Program
We believe everyone ought to have access to resources that support mental health. Therefore, The Woods Arts and Wellness was established as a non-profit organization so that we can offer an income-based sliding scale to those who do not have access to extended health care coverage or other funding sources, and whose annual household income does not exceed $100,000. This sliding scale structure ensures we can offer the most access to services with our limited funding.
We rely on your honesty to inform us of your session rate, based on 0.1% of your annual income, the table below can help you calculate your rate.
The lowest rate for a session with an RCC is $60 and for 1:1 music therapy is $40. For adults seeking services with an RCC at $80/session and below, we will require proof of household income. Counselling services at a rate of $50/session and below will be provided services by a counselling intern. Home visits for 1:1 music therapy (North Shore only) will incur an additional travel fee of $10 when outside 5km from our Delbrook location.
Please note that all subsidized services are subject to funding being in place. Those accessing this program will be given up to 12 sessions. Clients can apply for one renewal of subsidized sessions. Those 24 years and below will not require proof of household income, and can apply for two renewals of subsidized sessions.
