Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during my first counselling session?

During your initial counselling session, your therapist will likely conduct an assessment to better understand your concerns, goals, and background. You'll have the opportunity to discuss what brings you to counselling and what you hope to achieve. This session is also a chance for you to get to know your therapist and ask any questions you may have about the counselling process.

How do I know which counselling method is right for me?

Choosing the right counselling method can feel overwhelming, but our team is here to guide you through the process. We offer a free 20 min matching call to find a counsellor whose expertise aligns with your needs and preferences. You don't need to have all the answers – we'll work together to find the best fit for you.

Is counselling confidential?

Yes, absolutely. Confidentiality is a cornerstone of the counselling relationship. Your sessions and any information shared during them are kept strictly confidential, with few exceptions outlined by law, such as if there's a risk of harm to yourself or others. Your privacy is essential.

How long does counselling typically last?

The duration of counselling varies depending on your needs and goals. Some people find relief in just a few sessions, while others may benefit from longer-term support. Your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique circumstances, and together, you'll decide on the frequency and duration of sessions.

What if I'm not comfortable with my counsellor?

A strong therapeutic relationship is essential for the success of counselling. If you’re not connecting with your counsellor for any reason you have the right to request a different therapist or explore other options until you find the right fit for you. Your comfort and trust in the counselling process are essential.
