What will my first visit be like?
On your first visit, your therapist will meet with you so that you can both get to know one another. Your therapist will work with you to identify goals you wish to accomplish. You will also discuss your life, background, your concerns and how your therapist can help you become comfortable in therapy.
What is therapy like?
Therapy can be a different experience for everyone. Therapy is a safe, compassionate, non-judgmental place where you can receive not only support and encouragement, but professional, unbiased, and skilled feedback about whatever you may be experiencing.
We will spend between 45-55 minutes with you in each session. We explore, investigate, evaluate and sometimes challenge self-defeating attitudes, perspectives, behaviour patterns and belief systems. We also spend time outlining and reinforcing your strengths and positive attributes. We are here to offer you a place to relax, grow and ask the tough questions. Therapy allows you to connect with another human being, face-to-face, whose sole purpose is to be there to support you in achieving your goals.
What can I talk about in therapy?
We will discuss whatever you’d like, including feelings about yourself, your relationships, your history, your strengths, roadblocks, goals and so much more. Therapist have different styles, but it is important to find someone who will work to challenge you and assist you in developing tools used to cope and manage stress, communicate effectively, reduce suffering in your life, forgiveness processing and so much more.
What will you think of me?
Your therapist will not judge you or treat you with disrespect because of your thoughts, past or experiences. We realize that everyone has different life experiences, and no one should be judged for those experiences. Therapy is designed to be a safe place where you can feel comfortable to discuss whatever you feel comfortable discussing.
