Fees for sessions with George

In Person Life Transformation Therapy and counselling ($120 / in person session)

Sessions with George Hartwell M.Sc. - the developer of Life Transformation Therapy - are $150 Canadian per 90 minute session.  I work with 90 minute sessions for Life Transformation Therapy and for work with couples - marital therapy, marriage and family counselling.

Individual sessions with George combine a clinical interview to understand the key issues with therapeutic interventions to deal with core beliefs, life patterns, and identity issues so that you can move quicly toward a positive breakthrough in your life (usually significant changes are obvious within in 8 to 12 sessions).

Couple sessions with George make use of his years of clinical experience to identify key marital issues and support the healthy development of individuation, communication, conflict resolution, listening to one another, developing a sense of the marital mission, establish marriage values and boundaries, identify the difference between healthy confrontation and abuse and disrespect.  Proprietary therapeutic interventions are used to deal with core blocks to healthy couple relationships.

Premarital Counselling deals with learning communication and conflict resolution skills, establishing guidelines and a couple mission statement, understanding personality differences.  A relationship assessment - an assessment of the strong and weak aspects of the relationship - is included upon request.  Wisdom and experience tells us that issues in your relationship and in your lives that are not dealt with before marriage will rise up with added ferocity after marriage.

For phone counselling for Life Transformation Therapy and Counselling ($120 / phone session)

Sixty minute phone sessions with George Hartwell M.Sc. - Life Transformation Therapist - are $100 per session. Sixty minute sessions are standard for phone counselling. 

Half day Intensive Therapeutic Retreats with George ($360 / 3 hour day)

Five day therapeutic mini-retreat in Toronto @ $100 per hour.

The intensive mini-retreat involves 3 hours therapy per day (usual) at a cost of $300 per day.  The standard mini-retreat is five days from Monday to Friday.  These are held at my office at Dixie and Dundas in Mississauga.  Non-refundable deposit of 1/3 of total fee is required to book this time.

Full day Intensive Therapeutic Retreats with George ($720 / 6 hour day)

Full Christian Marriage or Individual Therapeutic Retreats ($720 / day)

In a full therapeutic retreat you receive 6 hours of focused therapy per day.  The cost is $600.00 (Canadian) per day.  This applies to both an individual or couple intensive retreat. Remember that your therapeutic retreats is exclusive - just you (one individual) or you (a couple) is present in the session with George.

In planning for your Intensive Christian Therapeutic Retreat not at my office but at a retreat center, remember there are costs for the clients and therapist at the retreat location for meeting, meals and accomodation.   Retreats may be from the minimum two days up to five days of therapeutic individual or marital retreat.  They may be held in Toronto or at an Ontario Retreat center or suitable Bed and Breakfast out of the city with meeting room facilities.

Retreat or Seminar with George at Your Location ($720 / day) plus travel honorarium.

A Retreat in Your Location involves a travel honorarium based on estimated dedicated travel time.  Travel and lodging is covered at your expense plus $600 per 6 hour day.  ($100 per hour for additional private sessions.)

It is sometimes necessary that the retreat be held in or near your location.  You may need to be near home because of a nursing infant or some other responsibility.  There may be suitable lodgings to hold a retreat.  You may want to stay there - allowing you time apart - but it is close enough to be available for emergencies or to stay in touch with young children.

In the full days, I provide six hours of therapy.  This might be done from 9:00 AM to noon and 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM., which leaves the evening free if that is needed. 

This provides my presence for teaching, training and therapy.
