Before we discuss counselling fees, we need to discuss counselling fit. Hannah Yager believes that “therapeutic fit” is the most important component of therapy. Research has concluded that clients that have a strong therapeutic relationship with their counsellor do best in counselling and achieve their goals more consistently. This “fit” needs to be great for client and therapist alike. If it is not a good “fit” for you or your therapist, you will will not be successful in counselling. Hannah wants to set clients up for a rewarding counselling experience. Converging Currents offers different session fee packages to fit the differing needs of clients. With this in mind, the following information is provided for your review:
Initial Meet & Greet Session
- Individual clients need anywhere from 6-15 + sessions to successfully work towards any given goal.
- Couples and Families need anywhere from 8-15+ session to successfully work on improving their relationships.
- ***Hannah will not agree to less than a minimum of 6 individual sessions or 8 couples/families sessions, as this does not provide enough time for your therapist to effectively establish a supportive relationship with you in order to reach your goals. Hannah does not offer Brief Therapy which would be counselling that is irregular or infrequent.
Thus, in order to honour clients wanting regular, weekly, scheduled appointments, Hannah only works with clients who are committed to the counselling process. This means regular spots are available and Hannah ensures that her schedule is not overbooked, so that clients can book consistent appointments. The most effective counselling is consistent counselling.
If you are currently unable to financially afford several sessions at once, it is strongly suggested that you take time to save up and put aside enough money to pay for successive sessions all at once. This will lead to an overall more successful, counselling experience in the future.
Sessions offered in English or Spanish depending on clients preference
If you have any questions Converging Currents offers a FREE ten minute online Zoom consultation, so that potential clients can meet Hannah face-to-face before booking an appointment.

Hannah, also, offers online counselling over Zoom: Please see Virtual Counselling for more information about online sessions from the comfort of your home.
I encourage you to consider your overall goals and how much time and money your wanting to invest. Then let’s create the program that makes the most sense for your needs. Some clients want a little bit extra support outside of their regular scheduled appointments. This additional support can come in the form of secure emails or phone calls.
30 Minute Video Conferencing Support $65
This is a great way to augment your counselling sessions. The Purpose of the this kind of support is to either check in with goals you are already working on in session or to work on other goals that you are more able to be self-directed with. We will check-in with your goals and set regular/weekly objectives. It is a great way to maintain forward movement as I support you with moving toward your goals, problem-solving any barriers that arise, gaining ideas for how to move forward, identifying any personal blockages and helping you remove them.
15 Minute Video Conferencing Support $30
For those times when you just need a quick check-in and things are going fairly smooth. Maybe you want to set new goals/objectives once you’ve achieved the ones you initially set or maybe you need help problem solving a minor obstacle.
Sometimes parents need a little extra support with something and want to check in during the week.
Monthly Email Check-ins/Support
1 Monthly Check-in $15
2 Monthly Check-ins $25
3 Monthly Check-ins $35
4 Monthly Check-ins $50
The purpose of the monthly email check-in is to provide follow-up outside of your counselling sessions. Some people want a little extra support outside of sessions. Maybe you have come up against some obstacles to your objectives and just need a few quick suggestions. I might recommend some solutions to barriers or send you an article that might be helpful.
