Each person coming into counselling is unique and will have different goals and issues that they might want to discuss. Generally, you can expect to discuss your current happenings in life, past experiences relevant to your current situation, and follow up from previous sessions.

 

Your participation in counselling will determine how much progress you make. Your Psychologist might suggest certain things to do outside therapy such as journaling, noting down behaviours or actions, or practicing different experiential activities. Basically, the more you give to the process, the more you gain. 

Sessions are typically 50 mins long and take place weekly or bi-weekly

Counselling sessions may be conducted In-Person or via Online means.

In-Person sessions are usually conducted at our office.
If you’d require alternative arrangements, feel free to drop us a message and we’re happy to discuss further with you.

Online sessions are conducted via Google Meet video conferencing.
Google Meet has similar functions as Zoom, but opens the video conference in your internet browser window directly and does not require you to download a dedicated software. Our paid account also provides additional security to keep the session safe and confidential.

During the 15 mins consultation, you can get to know your therapist better and they will get to know you better. You can ask them about their approach to counselling, share a little about what you are going through and see whether both of you are a good fit. 

Do you notice yourself feeling sad more often than not? Any changes in your sleeping or eating patterns? Are your relationships and work being affected?
