Individual Counselling

Has your life begun to feel like a rollercoaster? Are you tired of the highs and the lows, just looking to be on steady ground? If you have been feeling lately like you could use some extra support, then individual counselling could be right for you. There is no one- size-fits-all reason for why people seek counselling. Maybe you need some help managing a mental illness, have been feeling distressed, are looking for support during a challenging period of your life, or want help creating and maintaining meaningful and long-lasting relationships. Perhaps you are looking to go to therapy in a quest to better understand who you are, how you are feeling, and what you want out of life. Everybody’s path toward seeking out counselling is different. I want to understand your story. 

The second component is the bulk of counselling, when we work together towards your counselling goals. I offer compassionate support, skill-building, and adaptive coping mechanisms. Together, we will collaborate to overcome the challenges that are stopping you from achieving your goals.

I work with people experiencing

  

Increased worry, apprehensive, or fear

Feelings of sadness, low self-worth, guilt, and a decreased enjoyment in life

Deep and strong feelings of distress following a loss

Difficulties adapting or processing a life transition

Difficulties relating to others

Dissatisfaction with their relationships

A desire to change their behaviours

 

 

What does Individual Counselling Look Like?

There are two components to individual counselling. The first is an intake session where you will be asked a bunch of questions that will lay the foundation of our work together. We will work to better understand the reason for seeking out counselling, the history of the problem, and discuss relevant background information.  Do not be discouraged that no visible progress was made during the first session to address why you came to counselling. Therapy takes time and this first step is a crucial part of the process.

The second component is the bulk of counselling and is where we work towards your counselling goals. I offer compassionate support, skill-building, and adaptive coping mechanisms. Together, we will collaborate to overcome the challenges that are stopping you from achieving your goals.
