Sessions are available by appointment only. Please note we do not provide crisis counselling services or walk-in services.

Fees range from $160 to $250 per hour, depending on the service requested. Fees for Counselling and/or Hypnotherapy services align with Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers guidelines. Fees are scheduled to increase in January 2024.

Direct billing is available with some providers, such as Green Shield, SSQ and NIHB (Non-Insured Health Benefits for First Nations and Inuit).

We require 48 hours notice for cancelling or rescheduling an appointment. Cancellations received with less than 48 hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee up to the full cost of the appointment. Clients who miss or late cancel appointments two times (except in case of emergency) will be discharged, as this prevents others from accessing services.

15-Minute Consultations Available: If you would like to speak to Barb before scheduling an appointment, please request a free consult via our website or by emailing This is recommended if you have an unusual request or are seeking help with something that is not listed on our website.

Intake appointments for new clients are normally 2 hours, which includes the intake process and your first session if time permits. If you book a 1-hour intake appointment, it will include the intake process only. When you book an intake appointment, your email confirmation includes a link to our online intake and consent form. Please complete it before your appointment. If this is not possible, it can be completed verbally with Barb during your intake appointment or you can make arrangements to complete a paper copy in advance at our office.

Please note Barb Davies no longer offers smoking cessation hypnosis. Please book a complimentary 15-minute consultation with Barb, and she will schedule you with another practitioner at the office.

Thank you.
