Getting Started

Congratulations on your first step to counselling. Counselling generally takes about an hour. Depending on whether you’re going through family/relationship counselling or individual counselling, you’ll be given a safe space to talk about the issues that are affecting your life. In counselling, you do not necessarily receive advice. Instead, your thoughts, worries, and concerns are all explored until we’ve helped facilitate your ability to experience change in both emotions and habits. During the initial session, your therapist will ask a series of questions (i.e. family history, family situation, etc.,) to better understand the nature of your problem. As a team effort, you are expected to be open and honest about your concerns and feelings, and work with your therapist to achieve your goals.
