In Manitoba we pay 180 for psychologist-but a social worker is about 50-60. A psychologist is better , but many psychologists works in a group with social workers, so you can see a social worker who is supervised under a psychologist.
My social worker had been qualified as an expert in previous lawsuits-one involving a nun who was sexually abused by a Superior nun. So if their CV is good, then look into a cost-effective route.
Also you can request from your Doctor to be referred to a psychiatrist for back-up and medication review–wait is about 6 months or longer.
That is a really good idea.
I have an excellent employer that pays up to 3000 a year for psychologists–plus an employee assistance plan that covers 6-8 visits.
