Our expert says:
That sounds like rather a steep charge for a consultation, especially if this is someone qualified only as a counsellor ( honourable though that is as a profession ) and not as a psychologist or psychiatrist. But it sounds as though the need for counselling is significant and the cost of not working with a counsellor could be higher.
However, if you needed a new car and the first place you checked had nothing cheaper than a million rand, wouldn't you look around for a better price, rather than choosing to just walk everywhere from here on ?
Ask around, check with a reliable source of advice like FAMSA should should be able to suggest a number of counsellors reachable for you, at better prices than that.
