How Can Counselling Help Me?
Below you’ll find answers to some of the more common questions I’ve received. Read on to learn more about my services and what I’ve done to help my clients in pursuit of their goals. If you feel like you didn’t find the answer you were looking for, feel free to contact me for more information.
A Safe Place
Counseling provides a safe and confidential environment where you can express your thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of judgment. It offers a non-biased and compassionate space for self-exploration, so you can gain clarity and a deeper understanding of your emotions and experiences.
Guidance & Objectivity
Counsellors are trained professionals who possess the knowledge and skills to guide your through your challenges. They offer a fresh perspective, helping you uncover underlying issues and patterns that may be hindering your personal growth. Their objective viewpoint allows them to provide valuable insights and practical strategies for coping with difficulties.
How can I book a session?
Sessions can be booked online by sending an email or you can feel free to contact me over the phone @ 604-445-4165.
Alternatively you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. I know speaking on the phone can be daunting. I look forward to hearing from you.
What are your fees?
We will start with a 15 min consultation and see if working together will be a good fit.
A one hour session is $95.
I offer a sliding scale depending on your current financial situation. For example, if you are on ministry assistance - we can discuss what is a comfortable rate for you.
Emotional Support & Validation
During difficult times, having someone who truly listens and empathizes can make a world of difference. Counseling provides a supportive relationship where you can openly express your emotions and experiences, knowing they will be met with understanding and validation. This validation fosters a sense of acceptance and can help you develop a stronger sense of self-worth.
Life can get busy & I understand that you may need to re-schedule a session. If this happens, communicate what your needs are.
I require 8 hours notice for cancelations. Please kindly give me a call if you can not make your session. Email, call or text message.
I am a Certified Canadian Addictions Counsellor and provide services for Drug & Alcohol Counselling related issues. Please check with your insurance provider.
The clients that I see submit their invoice to their benefits provider for reimbursement.
Counseling equips you with effective coping mechanisms to navigate life's challenges. Counselling can help you identify unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaviour, and then work collaboratively to develop healthier alternatives. These coping strategies can empower you to better manage stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.
The benefits of counselling extend beyond the individual. It can also have a positive impact on relationships. Through counseling, you can gain insight into your communication styles, relationship dynamics, and emotional needs. This understanding fosters healthier and more fulfilling connections with loved ones, colleagues, and friends.
