Financial Information (proof of income is required in the form of a tax assessment. The counselling rate will be calculated by multiplying Gross Annual Household Income by 0.1%) and our minimum fee is $25/session. In order to qualify, Gross Annual Household income must be under $50,000 and there is no access to benefits or insurance.
Gross annual income is shown on line 150 of your tax return. Household income includes every member of your family over the age of 25 living together. South Island Counselling reserves the right to request formal documentation for proof of income. Examples of proof of income are tax returns, pay stubs, disability insurance, letter from employer, pension documents, or unemployment documents. The applicants subsidy form will not be processed until proof of income is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org If the applicant is under the age of 18, parent(s) proof of income will be required. For couples and Family counselling please use the regular intake form or Couples and Family Form.
Subsidy is granted only when funding is available. The subsidized rate is valid for up to 12 sessions. All subsidy applications are subject to approval by South Island Counselling Management. Due to the limited availability of subsidies, please also explore other funding sources. Please include additional notes and documents if there are other extraordinary circumstances that affect your ability to pay. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
