mind mīnd/: the element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world & their experiences, to think & to feel
The mind is a powerful thing — there’s a reason that’s a clichéd line! The foundation of Wholistic Health YYC’s psychology practice is Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Nutritional Psychology, Play Therapy & Sport Psychology.
I’m Sally Powis-Campbell, founder of WHyyc & Registered Psychologist in Alberta. My mission is to facilitate a wholistic approach to health care for clients & promote wholistic living for the greater community. This involves assisting you in raising awareness of health, wellness, & dietary-related behavioral issues & facilitate behavioural & emotional change.
Counselling is available for all ages, from young children to adults. IT can be done in person or via eCounselling. eCounselling options include telephone, FaceTime, Skype, & e-mail. This is a great option if you are out of town or can’t make it into the office.

Who pays for psychological services? //
Private psychological services are not covered by Alberta Health Services. However, for many people the cost of accessing psychological services can be offset through employee benefits or additional insurance coverage. The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta 2014 recommended fee schedule is $180 per hour (WHyyc’s rate is $150 per hour) for individual, couples, family counselling & assessments, as well as $60 per hour for group sessions. The treatment “hour” is usually 50 minutes allowing 10 minutes from each hour for after-session notes & other services. At the end of each session, clients are issued a receipt for psychological counselling services that may be used to obtain reimbursement from employee benefits or insurance company.
How many sessions will I need? //
How many sessions you’ll need depends on the presenting concern, complexity, severity & duration, as well as your personal motivation for dealing with presenting concerns. For some issues people can experience significant improvement in only a few sessions. Together, we can work together to estimate how many sessions you’ll require. However, ultimately, it’s your decision as to how many sessions you need, & clients are free to withdraw from services at any point.
