Counselling Goals

Coming to counselling can seem like an intimidating step. You might be wondering what it is and what we do here. For more information on the basics of counselling check out our FAQS page. For a more detailed breakdown of the counselling process, click here. While the goals of this process are varied, and depend on the individual seeking treatment, here are some general goals that we desire for all our clients:

Our first goal: Your Happiness

Before you invest your time, energy and money in a process, you want to make sure that it is going to work.  You may not be sure that counselling is for you.  We want to make sure that you leave Freedom Counselling confident that this was the right fit for you. As part of our satisfaction guarantee, we offer a free, complimentary consultation to get to know us and our approach. When you attend the first 30-minute session, you will already be comfortable with your counselor, and aware of how things will proceed. However, in the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with how things have gone by the end of that first session, you counselor will do whatever it takes to make it right – including refunding your money if necessary. We want you to be happy – right from the start!
