During Your Session
Once your counselling session with your counsellor begins, they will go through and review a treatment contract with you, so that you are aware of the boundaries and limitations of the relationship between client and any of our Shoreline counsellors. They will talk about the meaning of confidentiality and its limitations. They will also tell you about their approach to therapy and ensure that both client and counsellor are on the same page about how the process will move forward over time. At any point during the treatment process, your counsellor will welcome questions or concerns and respect any boundaries that you may have so the two of you can communicate comfortably.
At the end of your counselling session, you may book another session with your counsellor at a later date or give our office a call to set up a future follow-up session.
If you have never attended any type of counselling before, picking up the phone to begin the process can be difficult and come with some anxiety. It is hard to know what to expect and that can be daunting.
