Yes. Every counselling session is private and confidential. The information shared during your sessions is for the purpose of assessment, diagnosis and treatment and helps us provide you with the best possible support.
Llimitations to this confidentiality apply, as set out in the ACA Code of Ethics, if there is an immediate or specified risk of harm to an identifiable persons safety, or if a client’s file is subpoenaed by law.
The first question your TLC Counsellor will tend to ask is “What brings you here today?” They will often ask some general questions about you and your life so they can start to understand how they can best assist you. Your Counsellor will also give you an overview of what you can expect from your counselling experience and discuss the first steps and strategies you can take to start making a positive change in your life.
The counselling process is different for every individual and the number of sessions you need, will depend upon your unique circumstances. Some people resolve their issues in small number of sessions, where others prefer to work on their emotional development on a long term basis.
We offer very reasonable rates for individual, couples and family counselling and group workshops. Concessions apply for health care card holders, students and pensioners. For further details on pricing, please contact a TLC Counsellor on 0468 957 061.
