How do you bill for your services?

The Quirky Kid Clinic charges in accordance with a Schedule of Fees.

The information provided in this article is intended to assist you with interpreting the Quirky Kid Schedule of Fees and some of our Terms and Conditions and answering Frequently Asked Questions.


When you request a service from a Quirky Kid psychologist in the clinic setting, outside the clinic setting (e.g., school) or over the phone and email, we charge you in accordance with our Fee Schedule. The amount charged will correspond to the psychologist's billing rate and the time to provide you with the service. 

In addition to the psychologist's time, Quirky Kid may charge you for other services such as case management fees or administrative items like postage, photocopying or phone calls. The additional charges are billed to you only when it's necessary.

Billing Consent and Information

Quirky Kid has obtained your approval to charge for our services when you make a booking and when you complete our intake form. The intake and appointment confirmation email form also provides you with the disclosures and required information expected from us according to consumer legislation. 

You pay as you go

At Quirky Kid, we never hold an account in debt. You always pay as you go as per our Terms and Conditions. This means you are still in control of your costs. 

We bill the credit card 48-24 business hours before your appointment.

We understand, however, that some people seek psychological services during times of stress. For this reason, our team takes all possible steps to remind you of the likely cost of each service you request from us. 

We remind you about the costs  of our services by sharing our schedule of fees:

  1. When you first make a booking with us online or over the phone;
  2. In every appointment confirmation email
  3. When you complete the intake form;
  4. During the onboarding email series;

You can always ask us about the cost of service and choose not to proceed.
