I have been seeing a counsellor and payment is based on sliding scale. The counsellor said i was not working so i didn't have to pay. After a few sessions, I felt guilty for not paying anything so I asked if i could pay something then she said to pick a number on the scale that i could pay. I picked the highest number on the scale to pay because i don't know how much i can affort to pay. I am unemployment benefits. Now i don't know what to do. I can't figure out if i can afford the number i chose or if i am forgoing things i need and sacrificing myself to go to these sessions with payment to feel that i'm doing the right thing. I don't feel I deserve anything. I wanted her to tell me how much i can afford to pay. my options are tell my counsellor the above and see what she says keep paying the amount i have chosen or i reduce the amount and tell her can't think of any others.. Any advice, experience or anything?
