The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free.

Therapy takes effort and commitment, and it is important that you make a well-informed decision. Below is a list of my answers to some of the questions I'm commonly asked, which I hope gives you clarity as you navigate these unchartered territories and make important decisions regarding your emotional well-being.

Shouldn't things have to be really hard for me before I consider therapy?

Can't I just confide in my partner, close friends, or family? 

This is my first time in therapy and I'm experiencing some apprehension and nervousness about it.

What will others think of me if they know I am seeing a therapist?

How will our online sessions take place?

How safe are online sessions and how will my privacy be protected?

Can online therapy help my particular issue?

How do I start? Can we speak before I set up an Initial Appointment?

What can I expect from my Initial Appointment?

What happens post our Initial Appointment?

How do I know that you are the right counsellor for me?

What styles of therapy do you follow and practice?

How many sessions will I need?

Can you guarantee that I will get better? 

Can I end my counselling anytime? 

What do I do if I or someone I know is in crisis?

If you have a question that I haven't addressed within the website, feel free to drop me a note and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!
