Why I use a Sliding Fee Scale

Counselling over the Internet


The Internet provides a marvelous opportunity for distance counselling. 


To facilitate my service through the Internet, I use "ZOOM".

Zoom provides free software and the free video-conferencing service for point to point service.  All you need is a computer with a microphone and webcam, and an Internet connection.


Prior to scheduling an appointment, I must have a brief (5-minute) private conversation with the caller. In the case of a couple or parents seeking counselling, I may seek to speak with both persons privately before I consent to provide service. This brief conversation takes place by telephone.


Please reivew the various services I offer before calling so you will already have an idea as to what I can do, what is invovled and what it may cost. All my services are listed on this webpage:



Persons must pay prior to service through PAYPAL or by Interac money transfer. Payment is made to my email address. If you want to use a credit card, you may do so through PAYPAL. If you are doing a money transfer through Interac, you will be asked to provide a password for me to retireve the funds so please send me an email advising of the password chosen. Whether PAYPAL or Interac, you will send your payment to my email address: gary@yoursocialworker.com 


I do require payment in advance for this distance service. Because my first meeting is typically a good 3 hours duration, you will need to make your payment for 3 hours as per the sliding fee schedule you will find when eploring each service listed. You will be reimbursed for any time remaining or you will be required to make an additional payment if more time is required.


To initiate service, please send an email briefly outlining the nature of the problem and the service you seek. Please restrict your email to 100 words or less. This is not the opportunity to lay out the history of your issues, but just to give a quick sense of why you are seeking service. I cannot read lengthy emails. Please also indicate times you are available to chat by telephone.
