WHAT IS INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING?

Individual counselling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life.  Individual counselling can help one deal with many personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, career changes, etc.

Individual counselling (sometimes called psychotherapy, talk therapy or treatment) is a process through which an individual work one-on-one with a counsellor in a safe, caring and confidential environment.

Counselling allows individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, behaviours and work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals and work toward desired change.

Individual counselling is focused on the individual’s immediate or near future concerns.  Individual counselling may encompass career counselling and planning, grief after a loved one dies or dealing with problems at a job before they become big.

Individual counselling is a one-on-one discussion between the counsellor and the client based on an alliance and trust relationship that enables trust and personal growth.
