- relationship difficulties

What can I expect from counselling?
The decision to begin counselling is an important one. People have reported both a greater level of comfort and more favourable results when they understand what to expect from the counselling process. At our counselling office, you can expect:
- to meet one-on-one in a private setting with a professionally trained personal counsellor
- the content of your sessions to be held in confidence
- support and encouragement
- to have follow-up appointments as required that fit your class schedule
- to be informed of other resources that might be helpful to you
How can I get the most from my counselling sessions?
In order to benefit fully from counselling, the following recommendations are offered:
- attend scheduled sessions
- be specific about the concerns that led to your decision to seek counselling
- establish with your counsellor desired goals and outcomes to be achieved in counselling
- discuss your progress with your counsellor as you go along, and modify your goals if necessary
- participate actively and be as open and honest as possible
- tell your counsellor if you don't think you're being helped
Successful counselling is a joint process requiring your motivation and active involvement. The more actively involved you are, the more effective counselling will be for you.
