Question : What is your confidentiality policy?

Everything you say in sessions is CONFIDENTIAL. What this means is that we will not be talking about you to anyone else without your permission. If I may see you on the street or in any place public I will ignore you. This is not because I am rude, but  rather because I am respectful that if you are with other people and we say “hello” you will be forced to explain who I am. If you come talk to me,I will talk and be friendly, but I am wanting to protect your right to confidentiality.

However, there are times when a therapist is legally obligated to break confidentiality:

Harm to self or others.? If a therapist believes that you are in imminent danger of hurting yourself or someone else, a family member, police or ambulance
will be called to ensure safety.

A child under the age of 16 or older adult in care is in danger.? In these cases Family and Children’s Services or the police will be called.

A Legal case in Involved.

A client experienced a health emergency during a session.? In this case, medical staff would be provided only with necessary information.? No information? 
about why a client is in therapy will be shared.

Question : What do I need to attend my therapy sessions?

Make sure that you are in a silent environment where you won't be disturbed in the 50 mins that you're investing on your Mental health.Devices that you must have for the session are-

  1. Laptop/PC with webcam (Preferred) or a Smartphone to join the video call
  2. 4G/5G or a stable Wifi connection
  3. Therapy notebook 
  4. Pen/Pencil
Question : What does the first session look like?

In the first session we tap into the issues and your concerns which you would like to work upon in therapy. We also tap into different spheres of your life to understand different stressors.Sometimes this process might get even extended till 2 sessions for some clients.An assessment sheet is also shared  with you once the first session ends. The results of this assessment sheet are discussed with you in the 2nd session.

Question : How do I know this is the right therapist for me?
Do you feel comfortable with your therapist?
Can you be honest and open with your therapist?
Is your therapist responsive to your concerns and questions?
Do you feel confident in their understanding of your concern?
Are you confident in their ability to help you with your concern?

Having a good fit makes a significant difference in making progress in counseling. It is recommended that you give your therapist 2-3 visits to find a connection, unless  you are able to tell immediately that the personality fit is not going to click, in which case it makes the most sense to make a switch at that time.

Question : How long will appointments last?

Appointments are 50 minutes.This is the standard length of a counseling session.
