Counselling Therapy

My approach to therapy centers holistic wellness, a recognition of the whole person –  mind, body, and spirit. I wish to help my clients explore these elements of self, alongside their connections with others and their relationship with the wider world. Together, we can dive into the infinitely complex experience of being a human. 

You are unique, an expert in your story, so therapy must be attuned to your individual needs, circumstances, and life journey. I will support you in moving along your desired path, bringing my genuine empathy, truth, and an honouring of your individuality and personhood.

Confidentiality

You have a right to confidentiality in counselling, meaning I cannot tell other people about what you share. This means I cannot talk to friends, family, teachers, doctors, or other individuals in the community without your permission. 

However, there are some exceptions. I may need to share certain pieces of information if I have concerns about your safety. I am legally bound to break your confidentiality if I believe:

  • You are in imminent danger of harming yourself or know of another person in harm’s way
  • You will harm another person
  • A minor (under the age of 18) or dependent adult is being abused, neglected, or has witnessed abuse
  • If your record is subpoenaed. I may advocate to limit the information admissible, but the court can demand access your file.

     

This information is also provided in the informed consent documents, and will be reviewed during our first session together. 

*There are different rules when working with minors (under the age of 18). Please contact me to learn more. 

FAQs

If your questions are not answered below, please feel free to contact me.

To begin, I offer a Free Initial Consultation Session (15 minutes) to see if we would be a good fit. Not every counsellor will be a good fit for every client. Research has shown that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the strongest predictor of positive outcomes. This means it is very important that you feel safe and comfortable working with me.

Please go here to book your 15-minute free initial consultation session.

Counselling therapy session are 50 minutes each, with the exception of the initial session which is 65 minutes. Our first session will be longer so we can discuss our new journey together and review informed consent. 

The frequency and length of counselling is different for every individual, depending on your personal needs, life circumstances, goals, and preferences. We will check in regularly to ensure that we are on track and aligned with your desired path.
