Frequently Asked QuestionsThe following are some common questions you may have before deciding to embark on a counselling journey. Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions.
Confidentiality is key to any therapeutic relationship. That is why everything you share throughout your counselling journey will remain confidential with the following exceptions: If it is indicated that you or someone else is in imminent danger, if a child is in need of protection, or in the event that withholding confidential information would be in contravention to the law.
Most extended health care plans cover counselling services provided by a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) and/or Naturopath (ND). Please check with your insurance company to verify that you will be covered.
Going to see a counsellor for the first time can be anxiety-provoking. I promise, It isn’t as scary as you might think. The first counselling session focuses on building the client/counsellor relationship and getting to know one another. Your counsellor will ask you quite a few questions during your first, and even second session, as it is important for them to understand the issues you are facing and the types of experiences that you’ve been through. Feel free to ask your counsellor questions too, and try to be as open and honest as you can.
In the first or second session, you may also want to identify some therapy goals or what your best hopes are for your counselling experience. From there, the counselling process involves collaboratively working toward your goals in a safe, compassionate environment. You may periodically assess progress together, and shift gears if necessary. It is important that you be an active participant in your therapy journey, and offer feedback to the counsellor as well, as we are not mind readers, and we need your help to know what is and isn’t working for you. Take the first step -it’s the hardest part. It gets easier from there!
