People are often nervous before beginning counseling. This is normal. To ease your mind, here is a brief overview of what therapy might look like for you.
The First Few Sessions
The first session is for you to tell me a more about why you’re seeking counseling, what you’re hoping to achieve, and is a chance for us to see if we’re a good match.
As time goes on, we will dive deeper into issues, patterns, and – of course – solutions. Throughout therapy, we will check in on how you’re progressing with any goals you have while actively working towards them.
Length of Sessions and Therapy
Counseling sessions last for 60 minutes. The number of counseling sessions depends on the progression of therapy as well as the preference of each individual. Clients can of course choose how often and for how long they would like to attend counseling.
Confidentiality is an important part of therapy and something I take very seriously, as it is important to feel safe in therapy. Confidentiality can be broken if you are a harm to yourself or others, or if someone is harming you. If confidentiality needs to be broken for these reasons, I will discuss it with you before taking any further steps, giving you as much control as possible.
