Preparing for your first session
It is helpful to reflect on what brings you to counselling, and some of the outcomes you hope for. If you can, include specific symptoms you would like to overcome. If you are unclear about this, the first session will be an opportunity to explore it.
Regular appointments are 50 minutes long.
Counselling is a great opportunity for you to prioritize your needs, focus on yourself and the relationships you have with others around you. Congratulations on taking this step to improve your life. We look forward to serving and helping you achieve your goals.
