Frequently Asked Questions
Will my medical aid pay for the sessions?
This will depend on your specific medical aid and the plan that you are on – medical aids have different protocols when it comes to paying for therapy sessions.
Most aids pay for the sessions from the client’s day-to-day benefits/savings account.
Some aids require prior authorisation which usually entails a form to be completed by the therapist and/or client and sent to the medical aid.
Other aids/plans have a specific annual amount dedicated to mental health expenses.
It is best to contact you medical aid to find out exactly what their protocol is regarding paying for therapy sessions.
How many sessions will I need?
This is largely dependent on the nature of the situation and can range from anything between 2 to 20 sessions. On average I find that processes take roughly 6-10 sessions to complete.
What if I can only afford a certain amount of sessions?
I prefer that clients are open with me regarding their “budget” for sessions. If a client can only afford a certain amount of sessions, I will do my best to accommodate their budget. I will aim to do as much as possible in the limited time that we have together. I believe that doing something is better than doing nothing. Please bear in mind however, that I cannot perform miracles and that change usually takes a bit of time.
