What do I tell my teen or child about their first appointment?
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?
I have been to a counsellor before and it didnt help me. Why will this time be different?
Counselling is a personal process and its success depends on several factors. This includes personalities, building trust and being committed to the process. Open communication with your counsellor is very important and being able to seek clarification or ask questions is also helpful. The experience of your counsellor and the way they provide information to you is also something that determines a good fit between yourself and a counsellor. At Soothe 2 Shine we believe we can help you find a successful counselling experience with us.
Do I need a Mental Health Plan
I am an NDIA client through the NDIS. Can your services be covered through my NDIS plan?
How many sessions will I need?
Unfortunatly there is no simple answer to this question. Your individual circumstances and needs will be assessed and a plan developed with you. This will take into account the approach that will be taken and what type of therapy is most useful for your experience. As progress is made your plan may be modified. Of course life doesnt always go according to plan and sessions may incoporate new situations or experiences as well as how successful you can apply the tools you learn through the process. Appointments can be scheduled weekyly, fortnightly or monthly depending on how it fits into your individual plan.
What are the costs for counselling services?
Costs depend on the services provided and we are happy to discuss this with you when making appointments.
