We know that every person carries unique experiences and circumstances with them to therapy.
We believe your counselling experience should integrate a process that seeks to bring you hope and change through the following steps:
- You will pick whether you want to attend in-person, virtual or hybrid.
- You will get started with your initial session. Relationship building is the most crucial stage during this appointment, as trust and connection are vital in the therapeutic process. It takes “on average”, two or more sessions before you can determine your fit with the therapist. We always say, “Don’t give up on counselling, but connect with a new counsellor if not a good fit.” Don’t hesitate to contact our Intake Coordinator at 519-281-1845 or firstname.lastname@example.org if not a good fit. 80% of your change in therapy is about the relationship with your therapist.
- During your initial sessions, you will share your current circumstances and areas you would like to see changed, and then we will go from there. We want to get to know you.
- Once you and your therapist feel you are comfortable and present concerns and desires are shared, you will begin to work through various activities, skills, and treatment methods We aim to work with you in partnership, helping you gain insight and new skills that create an environment for change.
“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.”
