Counselling Sessions

Sometimes people just want to consult about a difficulty for one or two sessions. Most engage in sort-term work lasting 10 to 20 sessions. Some want more substantial gains in personal growth and engage in longer term therapy and Clearing work.

Ethics & Boundaries

Confidentiality is of utmost importance so that you have the safety you deserve. There are some limits to confidentiality (requirement by law to report child abuse, subpoenaed records by the Court or we may be called to testify, and if your life or somebody else's life is in danger). In these cases, we will initiate actions to keep you or others safe. Aside from these exceptions, issues discussed in counselling sessions remain confidential.

We willingly abide by all ethical guidelines as set out by our governing body and are insured.
