FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
The best way to reach out and make an appointment is through the contact us part of this website or by phone. I do my very best to accommodate client schedules with my availability.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I'M READY FOR COUNSELLING?
This will be a unique answer for each person. However generally our body tells us when we need to process or when we need an alternative perspective. Counselling can help teach you how to self regulate in order to achieve better balance.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN MY FIRST SESSION?
During your first session, your counsellor will go through the policies and procedures you signed in the consent forms and give you the opportunity to ask any questions. We also take the remainder of the first session to get to know each other and start the focus on understanding your goals for counselling.
CAN WE DO IN PERSON COUNSELLING?
In order to minimize overhead costs from being passed down to clients, at this time Inner Balance Counselling is an exclusively virtual practice. Also being exclusively virtual allows us to serve clients across all parts of Ontario.
WHAT TYPE OF THERAPY DO YOU PROVIDE?
Different situations and different personalities lend themselves to different types of therapies so I work with you to create an individualized plan that is best suited for your personal needs and situation. That being said I have been trained in many therapy modalities such as Narrative, CBT, Solution Focused, mindfulness and Trauma Informed Therapy.
WHAT POPULATIONS DO YOU SERVE?
I have worked with many individuals of ranging age groups and populations from young adolescents to seniors.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS/AVAILABILITY?
Inner Balance Counselling is happy to accommodate your counselling needs as best as possible (including some evening and daytime hours). For more details please contact us to arrange something what works for your needs.
HOW DO YOU BILL MY INSURANCE? IS COUNSELLING COVERED BY OHIP?
In order to minimize overhead costs from being passed down to clients, Inner Balance Counselling takes payment via direct deposit and then gives you a receipt to claim for insurance. Unfortunately at this time we have no funding from OHIP or other third parties.
HOW MANY SESSIONS AND HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET?
This will be a unique answer for each person; some people will want to do counselling regularly and other infrequently depending on their needs and budget. I am happy to discuss this with you on a case by case basis.
