What can I expect from counselling?

What you can expect from counselling is an environment that is non-judgemental and safe. As every client has different needs, your needs will be tailored to how we work together as a team. Counselling has specific goals that are attainable, measurable, and realistic. It is my job to help you reach your goals and at times challenge your goals. Changes happen when you make the change. What you put into therapy is what you will get out of therapy. It is my goal to work with you to assist and achieve your goals.
