Payment information

Counselling services are provided and billed by La Vie Counselling, which is a CASH practise.

We do not have access to claim from medical aids, or current health plans, however a Statutory Body has been established and is expected to commence operations and registrations by end of 2020.  This will provide us with the ability to claim from medical aids and we will inform our clients when this form of payment is possible.

Please note that services are billed below medical aid rates.

Rates are:

• R450.00 per hour for one person
• R550.00 per hour for two people

For groups (2+ people) an hourly rate will be discussed before our first session depending on how many people will be attending the session.

You can pay in cash at your session or via EFT.

Should you choose to pay via EFT, you will receive an invoice in advance and I kindly ask that you settle your account BEFORE each session.

Please send proof of payment to:

The client remains personally responsible to ensure that he/she can attend the session on the agreed date and time. If you are uncertain about appointment dates and times, please phone to confirm. If you are unable to attend a session, please be courteous and cancel or reschedule the appointment 24 hours before your scheduled booking.

This will afford me the opportunity to appoint the time slot to another client.


  • Sessions for one person are 60 minutes.
  • Sessions for two people are 90 minutes.
  • For groups (2+ people) a time can only be determined depending on the size of the group.
  • After 4 sessions we will reassess the situation and a new decision will be made concerning the best course of action for you.
  • This may include: referral to another professional, continuation of sessions or termination should we determine that the necessary progress have been made.
