Typically, clients meet with a counsellor on a one-to-one basis in a safe, confidential, and inviting environment. The focus is on the clients’ concerns, issues, and goals. Individual counselling is helpful for a variety of different mental-health reasons, including anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, grief, and gender identity, to name just a few, and to improve clients’ mental health, self-awareness, and wellness. The duration of each treatment session is typically 50 minutes, but this time can vary depending upon the individual client’s needs. Clients who travel a distance for counselling support might wish to book a 75-minute appointment.
