Therapy Without Breaking the Bank

By Mumtaz Saley

Though you may have a friend of a friend who is a therapist and is willing to hear you out over WhatsApp in an emergency, sometimes that doesn’t really work well when you need a proper appointment with a professional.

Now, unless you’re on a comprehensive medical aid plan, your medical aid won’t cover more than a few sessions and that’s often not enough. Generally, an hour-long session of talk therapy costs between R950 to R1800, meaning that a minimum of R4000 a month would need to be set aside for therapy sessions if you’re looking at weekly sessions. This doesn’t include the cost of medication or the price of fuel to actually get to sessions.

It is almost unanimously agreed by researchers that the demands for therapy are increasing, in part due to the high-stress lifestyle the average person is now living. I decided to hunt down as many options as I could in the Johannesburg area which would allow a normal person to gain access to therapy without having to sell their organs in the process. Here are my findings:

Find a Therapist in your Area

This is the first, and least labour-intensive option. If you’re wanting to start seeing a therapist or if you’re already seeing one and your medical aid has run out, request their cash rates and check if they’re willing to negotiate on their rates based on income and means. Alternatively, take advantage of the psychiatry department at the closest government hospital to you and allow them to assign you a therapist. If you’ve built up a relationship with the therapist you’ve been seeing privately, ask if they are currently giving their services to state hospitals. Many therapists are on call at state hospitals at various times in the month, so ask your therapist for their schedule and make your appointments at the hospital itself. read more
