Talking on the Phone_edited.jpg


Finding the right Therapist is important. Not every client is going to 'click' with every Therapist, and that's okay! Envision Counselling Services offers a free 15 minute telephone consultation to all inquiring clients. This is a chance for clients to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of what to expect in therapy.  

Frequently Asked Questions 

What should I ask in a Consultation? ​

  • This is your chance to get to know the Therapist. You can ask anything that is going to make you feel more comfortable with the therapy process. Here are a few typical questions: 

  1. Do you have experience working with _______ ? 

  2. What types of approaches and modalities do you use? 

  3. What can I expect from a therapy session? 

  4. What are the pricing and billing practices? 

  5. How long does it take to get in between appointments? 

Is the consultation confidential? 

  • Yes. All conversations with your Therapist are confidential. However, Therapists do have the responsibility to breach confidentiality when required to do so by law. Ask your Therapist about limits of confidentiality. 


Do I need to disclose a lot of personal information in the consultation? 

  • The consultation is just a chance for the Therapist to understand if their approach and skill set matches the needs of the client. The Therapist will ask for the information they need and guide you through! 

What if I want to do a consultation with a few Therapists? 

  • This is encouraged! Finding the right Therapist is a crucial part of Therapy. The consultation does not give you any obligation to follow through. Talking with different providers can help some clients in making the best decision for themselves.

  • The case of a coaching session is $45.00. 

Will this help me to lose weight?
