You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it.

The idea of starting counselling can be worrisome and scary. Luckily, it's not as bad as it sounds and if you're worried about what might happen, here are a few things you can expect after completing the necessary forms.

During our first session, we’ll spend some time learning about each other. I’ll ask about your expectations of therapy, your background and what brings in you in. It will help me understand what your concerns are, how long you have been dealing with them and what factors might have influenced their development.

In the following sessions, our focus will shift towards creating an action plan and finding the right balance in your life. To get the most out of counselling, you might be given tasks, which means I may ask you to reflect on something, read a suggested book or keep a journal.


You get to set the pace when it comes to telling your story, so share as much as you can and take as much time as you need. Counselling is a process that takes time to start noticing changes in how you think, feel and act.

The length of time we will work together depends on why you are coming to therapy and what you hope to get out of it. Upon reaching our last session, I will ensure you leave with resources to support you continue your growth.

Thank you for considering me as a partner on your all-important journey in life.
