What will counselling be like?

The first visit

Your first session will be a chance to get to know each other, discuss your goals and questions and review the consent form.  The consent form includes information regarding how strict confidentiality is maintained, how your your privacy is protected, my responsibility as a counsellor, and your responsibility as a client.  Their are potential benefits of counselling as well as aspects that may difficult such as making changes, becoming frustrated, committing to working hard, trying new approaches, and exploring some life changes.  If you decide you would like to continue with counselling we will discuss what it may look like for you in terms of the frequency of your sessions, the cost and an approximation of how many sessions you may expect to come.
