What would the counselling process involve?

Info Gathering:

Once you’ve expressed interest in counselling using the form below, I’ll send you a link to a referral form. This will include a few questions about who you are, why you’re seeking counselling, and what you’d like to get out of sessions.

Initial Session:

I like to allow 90 minutes for the initial session so that I can learn more about you, your history, the people in your life, your current situation, and your goals.

Follow-Up Sessions:

These are additional 60 minute sessions to further unpack things and work on goals. The number of extra sessions you’d like is completely up to you. At the end of each session we’ll check in about how you’re progressing with your goals, whether additional sessions are appropriate, whether you’d like to work on new goals, or if you’d like to finish up with counselling for now.

Closure Session:

These are completely optional, but if you’re like me, I like to know how far I’ve come. I would compile a document summarising everything we worked on, what you achieved, the skills and resources you now have, and the plan moving forward. You would get a copy of this document, and the closure session would be used to talk through it and discuss any insights or questions. Even though it’s the end of sessions for now, you would of course be welcome to come back for more sessions at any time.
