You may call for an appointment without a doctor’s referral. Before our initial session it would be helpful for you to think about and write down the concerns that have prompted you to consider counselling. How are these concerns affecting you? What needs attention in your life? What do you wish to be different? Also consider any questions you might have about the therapy process.

At our initial meeting I will ask about your background and your concerns. I will also discuss my policies with you in more detail. I encourage you to bring your questions, ideas and responses forward at this session and at any point during our work together.

My fee is $120 per session, which typically lasts one hour. The fee is payable at each appointment by etransfer, cash, debit, or credit card. I request 24-hour notice of any cancellations. Should an appointment be missed or broken without notice, you will be charged for the missed session.

Some extended health plans will cover visits to a Registered Clinical Counsellor.

I would be pleased to discuss my role further with you. You may call (250) 479-3375 or email me at support@sheilagabel.com for more information or to book an appointment if space is available. My office is located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and is wheelchair accessible. My days of works are Tuesdays through Fridays. The wild birds outside the window show up whenever they like.
