Your healing journey starts with a free trial session. It will last 30 minutes and allow you to try out my counselling style and approach.
I will ask you some questions to get to know you and the reason that brings you to counselling. Some questions will relate to your issue and some questions will help me to get the big picture.
Part of the first session will be to decide how often you will come to see me. Most people see a counsellor once a week.
If you would like to work together more often or you are really busy and want to spread out the sessions more, either is possible. This is your journey; it should fit your life.
After the first session, each counselling session lasts 60 minutes.
Anything you say in the session is kept confidential. This means I will not share your information or talk about you without your permission. If there is a serious threat of suicide or homicide I will report this to the proper authorities. This is out of concern for your safety. By law I must report to the children’s aid society any information you share with me about a child under 16 who is being abused or neglected. I discuss cases with my clinical supervisor, however you are kept anonymous and I don’t use any identifying information.
Appointments are available during the day evening or weekend. To make an appointment call 416-821-7315.
