About Our Counselling Services
At CFCS, we believe that your counselling is a shared journey in which you and your therapist assess problem areas and identify solutions for your personal life, your child, your relationship, or your family.
Although counselling is always different for each unique person, your counselling is essentially a cooperative process in which you and your therapist both work together to:
- Talk through your private struggle in a trusting, empathetic, and supportive atmosphere;
- Help you to gain a new perspective and to explore alternative pathways forward;
- Learn and implement effective, step-by-step solutions to manage and improve your concerns; and
- Create the positive change in your life and/or relationship(s) that you seek.
Our therapists embrace a diversity of therapeutic techniques and styles, such as Christian counselling, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), family systems theory, narrative approaches, solution-focused therapy (SFT), and more. By openly communicating with you about your personal needs, comfort level, and counselling goals, your therapist selects the most appropriate and helpful therapy method(s) for him or her to apply during your counselling sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about CFCS Counselling:
No, our counselling center is non-denominational and we welcome you as a client regardless of your religious or spiritual affiliation, cultural heritage, socioeconomic background, or sexual orientation. Each of our therapists is a professionally trained Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and treats a diversity of clients through numerous therapeutic modalities. Christian counselling is merely one of many possible counselling options available to you from our therapists. If you do wish to integrate your religious faith or spiritual beliefs into your counselling sessions, please inform your therapist. He or she embraces your input into your counselling process and seeks to incorporate your personal preferences into his or her treatment plan for you.
Counselling may be very beneficial to you in many ways. For example, the simple act of confidentially disclosing your personal problems to your therapist may provide you with great relief, as may discovering that you are not alone in your private struggle and that many supports are available to you. The most important element in your counselling progress is the trusting, supportive partnership between you and your therapist. By scheduling an appointment with one of our therapists to discuss your personal situation, you can receive his or her feedback about how counselling may be of specific assistance to you.
During your first counselling session, you and your therapist may confer about the number of counselling sessions that you possibly require based upon your private concerns and the shared goals that you and your therapist may seek to achieve together. The frequency of your counselling sessions may vary from weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly to more occasional appointments. Together, you and your therapist can determine a treatment plan that best suits your unique needs and scheduling availability.
Unfortunately, we do not offer child-minding services at this time. Please prepare alternative childcare arrangements during your appointments.
