What are your Covid protocols?
For your safety and mine, I am offering counselling over the phone and via secure videoconferencing platforms. In-person counselling will become available according to provincial health guidelines and on a case by case basis.
How many sessions do I need to feel better?
For some, counselling is a lifelong process of self-exploration and for others, it is a once in a blue moon emergency intervention. It may take as few as 3-6 sessions to address practical issues and learn self-regulation skills. Depending on your circumstances, it may get worse before it gets better as intense unprocessed emotions come up to the surface. To resolve deep-seated trauma and the root cause of your concerns it may take longer than a few sessions. In any case, counselling should take as long as you want it to take! You are in the driver’s seat.
