Frequently Asked Questions
What is counselling?
Counselling is a safe space where you can reflect upon your emotions and feelings. Within this space, we work as a team to discover patterns of thoughts and emotions that may be causing you pain or affecting how you deal with relationships. Not only the relationships you have with others, but also the relationship you have with yourself.
Then as we reach an understanding, we create new strategies to help bring about a positive change, so that you feel more equipped to handle the challenges that are a part of your daily life.

What are the benefits of working with a counsellor via the phone or Skype?

- Convenient for those who don’t have transportation or live in remote areas
- Convenient for those who are just feeling unwell or find it hard to get motivated to face the world
Am I obligated after the first consultation to continue?
You are not obligated to continue if you feel uncomfortable for any reason. It’s important that you feel we are the right “fit” for therapy to be of value. If this occurs, I am happy to refer you onto another counsellor with no hard feelings. It has to be right for you.
