30 minute Consultation
This meeting gives you an opportunity to come in, meet me, find out more about my approach to counselling, and ensure a good fit between you and I. It's an opportunity for you to ask me questions about counselling process. Some of the questions that I am usually asked at our consultation are the following:
Your first counseling session might feel like the first day of school - you feel anxious, excited, fearful, hopeful, sad, happy... a whole range of emotions. In this session clients often discuss issues, feelings, and thoughts that brought them to counselling. I often help clients identify their counselling goals.
Second session often begins with a brief review of the first session and further clarification of your counselling goals and we begin exploring how to reach these goals. We explore what we need to do in the session and what you need to do outside of the sessions for achieving your counselling goals.
We begin each session with a focus on your progress. We also discuss important issues and roadblocks, as identified by you. We will regularly discuss your progress and talk about what is working for you in counselling and what does not seem to work.
Your counselling process is complete when you feel that the concerns that brought you to conselling have been addressed and resolved. However, you might have many other reasons for terminating counselling and I always honour and support your decision. I believe that you know best!
Trauma happens when we do not have enough resources to cope with physical, emotional, cognitive or spiritual stress. Spirituality is your relationship with something that is greater then yourself, you can call it God, the Universe, Divine, Nature. This relationship with Something Greater Then Yourself is present regardless your religious practices. You can be Jewish or Muslim, you can practice Christianity, Buddhism, or Nature Based Traditions like Wicca or Shamanism and you will have a relationship with something greater then yourself. This relationship can be loving, neglectful, varying, or full of fear. Whatever this relationship is it is often changed by trauma.
My baby is learning to crawl. Watching her struggle is a lot like watching people moving through emotional pain. There is a pull in my stomach, a physiological response, an impulse to jump in and help, make the struggle go away. I take a deep breath and offer her space, my compassion and presence. I watch her struggle as I breathe deeply and I witness her mastering the movement and succeeding. Just like with people moving through emotional suffering, the impulse to jump in and save is there, but so is the breath. I breathe as I choose to offer my presence instead of rescue. And in this space magic happens. In this space people find passage through suffering, and as they move through the threshold they step out of pain and into their power.
This is a beautiful video and what I got out of it is the following:
