First Contact Once you have made contact with us, we will send you a profile packet to complete and return. The packet will allow you to provide your personal and medical details, as well as reason(s) for seeking counseling. Once we receive this information back, I will invite you for an assessment session.
Assessment Session The assessment session lasts for about an hour and a half. During this time, certain questions will be asked about you and your life. This information helps to develop an initial assessment of your circumstances. Identifying what you hope to gain from counseling helps to give you something to work towards in future sessions. A number of other things will also be covered such as confidentiality, session goals, and session timings.
On-going Sessions Sessions will be scheduled weekly and pass quickly once your begin opening up. Serenity of Life offers a relationship between the client and counselor central to the counseling sessions and where a greater understanding of your concerns can be achieved. The client's responsibility in psychotherapy is to work towards becoming more aware of your experiences, thoughts, feelings, and memories to share during each therapy session.
