A best practice in counselling services is that the therapist provide a copy of her/his Disclosure Statement for review and discussion. I provide copies of my Disclosure Statement at our first conversation. My disclosure statement includes information regarding fees, confidentiality and its limits, cancellation policy, my Personal Information Protection Policy, and my process of closure. For your information, I use the “Recommended Fee Schedule” at the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellor website http://bc-counsellors.org/
Also during this first conversation, we will work together to determine your immediate goals. We will revisit these goals and celebrate together, or change the goals as the way becomes clearer. I am committed to helping you meet your goals in a skilled and timely manner.
