I believe it is extremely important for clients to connect well with their counsellor. When a good relationship can develop, positive changes are much more likely to happen. So...lets find out if we are a good fit!
I offer one free email exchange where you and I can get to know one another. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions, learn more about the process of email-counselling, and get a sense of whether I am the right fit for you. It is also an important opportunity for me to learn about what brings you to counselling, and to honestly assess whether I can be a valuable support for you at this time.
Here are the steps to begin counselling:
- Identify what it is that has brought you to counselling at this time. Sometimes this is hard to put in to words, so just do what you can.
- Register to be a client. It is important that you do this before we begin discussing your concerns as this system provides a very safe and secure online portal where we will be exchanging messages. Please ONLY send confidential information though that system.
- LogIn to the secure client portal and complete the short intake and consent forms. This is done online only - no need to download anything to your computer.
- Once you are logged into the Secure Client Area, you can send me a message outlining your concerns and any questions you have for me. I will get back to you within 3 days. You will not be charged for the first email exchange - this is a great chance for you and I to ask questions and assess whether e-counselling is the best fit for you.
