In Person Appointments
If you benefit most from in person visits, or don’t have reliable access to the technology for virtual services, we may be able to meet with you face-to-face.
We provide therapy for:
Couples Marriage Counselling
Grief and Loss
Professional and Executives
ADHD & Learning Disabilities
Fear of Flying Therapy
How do I start?
Contact our clinic and a member of our team will speak with you by phone for a brief, and free, initial consultation. We’ll want to understand your situation and learn more about what you’re looking for. With that information, we’ll be able to determine which of our therapists might be the best fit for your specific needs.
What happens during the first appointment?
In a first appointment, your therapist will want to have a conversation with you about the nature of your challenges, as you see them. When we’re struggling, we can become stuck in unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour, so your therapist will be looking for signs of those and gently pointing them out to you, to help you begin to see them. Your therapist will probably want to ask about your personal and family history, in order to get a better sense of who you are, but we know that your challenges are occurring in the present day, so your functioning in the here-and-now will always be at the centre of our focus.
At the end of the conversation you and your therapist will decide on some next steps, you’ll receive some feedback about your therapist’s initial impressions, and you’ll both look towards scheduling a follow-up appointment. We know that real change takes time, so we’ll probably ask to meet with you again within 1 – 3 weeks. We’ll take payment from you and give you a receipt you can submit to your insurer for reimbursement.
What if that therapist isn’t the right fit for me?
Just let us know if, for some reason, you didn’t feel a good fit between you and your therapist. If you tell your therapist that person can probably correct whatever wasn’t right and make it better for you the next time. Or, if you’re not comfortable doing that, reconnect with our office. We can always arrange a second appointment with another clinician.
