Appointment and Fees

Consultations

As the demands for Kemila’s service have grown significantly, to preserve her energy to serve people who are ready and who are committed, Kemila has decided not to offer free consultations anymore.

You are encouraged to do your own research. Our website has a wealth of information on general questions such as “How does hypnotherapy work”. When you have something specific and would like to discuss those specific questions and concerns, please feel to schedule a 30-minute consultation. This is an opportunity to speak with Kemila to see if hypnotherapy is a good fit for you. We’ll ask questions of each other. An in-person consultation is $45. An online (Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime), or a phone consultation is $25.

As a result of having a consultation with me, you will leave with a clear insight into the potential benefits of hypnosis and how you might feel about working with me. You will have all of your questions answered and be empowered to make an informed decision about your future.

Sessions

The initial session is 110-minute long. Subsequent sessions are typically 90 minutes. All prices are per session, not per hour. All prices are in Canadian Dollars.

At your first appointment, we will review the assessments, have an in-depth discussion about your answers and presenting issues, then we will introduce you to hypnosis, and agree to a plan that will get you the results you are looking for. Although each person is unique, on average, it takes about 4 to 6 sessions for a permanent change to take place.

Single Appointments

Single appointments are suitable for someone interested in trying hypnotherapy, including past-life regressions, for the first time, or for someone who has undergone a treatment plan and desires occasional reinforcement of the tools that they have learned.

The first session is $230. After that, each single session is $190, plus GST.

If for any reason, a one-hour initial session is all is required, please indicate that at the time of scheduling, and it will be CAD$150 for the session.

Packages

Session packages provide significant discounts over the cost of single appointments and are affordable options for a course of treatment. Packages are available for three and five sessions. The package pricing below includes the first session.

A 3-session package may be suitable for a simple single presenting issue.

A 5-session package provides time for a more thorough treatment process. Issues can be more complex than they initially seem, can lead to other unresolved earlier problems, or simply be difficult to pre-determine the treatment length beforehand. For these reasons, five-session packages represent the greatest value and present the most flexible treatment option.

A 7-session package offers more ongoing support in challenging times.

Packages are also suitable as part of ongoing treatment for multiple related or separate presenting issues.

Complimentary out-of-session phone support is part of the package.

Insurance Coverage

I am NOT a licensed psychologist in BC or anywhere. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

For example, some providers advised that although Hypnotherapy services are not listed under regular health benefits (under Psychology visits, etc), they could be covered under a plan’s Health Spending Account.

Depending on your contract with the insurance company, insurance receipts available for “Alternative Medicine” or “Complementary Medicine”, as I am with RITMA(Therapists in Alternative and Complementary Medicine Association. Certificate number 6441).

A sample RITMA receipt can be found here.

I have a profile as a provider (Professional ID: 2288) with Arete HR Inc., which provides Arive® Employee/Member Assistance Program (EAP) supports employees/members and their families through a self-referral counselling process. If your employer has this program, you can request the insurance to set up direct billing with me.

Cancellation Policy

My time is my income and my hours are by appointment. Your time slot is reserved exclusively for you. Please arrive promptly to obtain your full session – in person or on Skype. If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

Guarantee & Refund Policy

I sincerely want you to succeed and pledge to help you to the best of my ability. However, no guarantees as to the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for your particular problem are made or implied, as it is impossible to guarantee human behaviour or compliance. Therefore, no refunds for services are given. Hypnotherapy is not a quick fix or magic pill. A hypnotherapist is considered a guide or facilitator. You assume equal responsibility by making a commitment and allowing yourself to be guided into a state of hypnosis.

No refunds will be given for unused prepaid sessions. All prepaid sessions are non-transferable and will expire after six months from the date of purchase unless a special arrangement is made in advance.
