Individual counselling is the opportunity to engage in one-on-one support with a registered or provisionally registered psychologist. Clients may seek individual counselling for a variety of reasons, such as wanting support facing life stressors, struggling with a mental-health diagnoses, or for personal growth and exploration.
Individual sessions are often 50 minutes in length and can be online or in person. Sessions may include a variety of approaches (see approaches for more information), but our process at Horizon Counselling begins with a collaborative and human focused lens where we create a judgement free and welcoming atmosphere.
