What happens in a counselling session?


When you begin cognitive-behavioural therapy, you will begin with an intake evaluation, which may take two or more sessions. This evaluation will help your therapist understand the problems that need to be addressed.


Based on a deeper understanding of the nature and degree of the problem, the counselling sessions will review the various situations and relationships that may be troublesome for you. Specifically, we will want to learn the kinds of thoughts and assumptions you may have, what behaviours you engage in that are rewarding or punitive to yourself or others, and your style of communicating and listening.


Unlike other forms of therapy, which are unstructured, you and your therapist will set an agenda and goals for each meeting.


With each session we review your experience in the previous session, your intersession tasks, one or two current problems, a review of what you've accomplished in this session, and task setting for the next meeting.


Our overall goal is to solve problems, not just complain about them.
