It is my first time to counselling, what if I am nervous and don’t know what to talk about?
It is completely normal and very common to feel nervous about a first counselling session. We like to remind our clients that they are in the driver seat, and we, as counsellors, are in the passenger seat, meaning that there are no obligations, and we will go at your own pace. During a first counselling session, we will complete an intake together and your counsellor will ask a variety of questions that will provide some guidance. Any questions you may have can be answered at this time, or at any point throughout counselling. Ultimately, in the first session, your counsellor wants to help you feel as comfortable as possible and get to know you better!
