Frequently Asked Questions

I am dedicated to providing compassionate and professional counselling services to support your healing and personal growth journey. Here, I have compiled answers to some of the frequently asked questions about counselling to help you better understand the process and make informed decisions.

  • What is counselling and how can it help me?
    Counselling is a therapeutic process where you can talk to a trained professional about your thoughts, feelings, and concerns in a safe and confidential environment. It can help you gain insight, develop coping skills, and explore healthier ways of managing challenges and emotions.
  • What types of issues or concerns can counselling address?
    Counselling can address a wide range of issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, self-esteem, and personal growth.
  • How long is a counselling session and how often should I expect to attend?
    Counselling sessions typically last for 50 minutes, and the frequency of sessions can vary depending on your individual needs and goals. We can discuss and determine the best schedule for you during our initial sessions.
  • Is counselling confidential?
    Yes, counselling sessions are confidential, and your privacy is of utmost importance to me. However, there are legal and ethical exceptions to confidentiality, such as instances where there is a risk of harm to yourself or others. I will discuss the limits of confidentiality with you during our initial sessions.
  • What should I expect during my first counselling session?
    During your first counselling session, we will discuss your concerns, goals, and relevant history to get a better understanding of your needs. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions, get to know me as your counsellor, and determine if we are a good fit to work together.
  • How do I know if counselling is right for me?
    Counselling can be a great way to gain support for any personal, relationship or mental health issues you may be facing. Before deciding if counselling is the right choice for you, it's important to ask yourself if you're open to discussing your thoughts and feelings and actively taking part in the counselling process. If you're willing to do this, then counselling may be the right choice for you. It's also important to find a counsellor you feel comfortable and safe with, as this will help to ensure you get the most out of your sessions.
