What to expect during counselling

During your first visit, you and your counsellor will discuss your concerns. Depending on the circumstances, your counsellor may help you set up a strategy and specific goals for addressing the issue. Future sessions will be booked at regular intervals as determined by you and your counsellor.

How long is a counselling session?

Depending on the therapeutic style and intervention being used, our sessions are generally 1 hour to 1.5 hours.
