  • Approach

 
  • Therapy involves commitment from both the therapist and the client as they develop a treatment plan based on the identified issues. Sometimes it is difficult for clients to give expression to their innermost thoughts and feelings. Individuals may experience unfamiliar emotions and feelings as they are brought to the conscious level. Understanding that, the therapist offers empathy and listens attentively while clients journey to wholeness and experience positive change.

     

 
  • At Veritas Counselling Centre, we use a psychoanalytic, systemic approach and may use the following therapies: Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Meaning Focused Therapy, Experiential, Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Theory (using Genograms), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Logotherapy and Gestalt. Spiritual counselling is offered using the approach of Elijah House, the combined techniques and methodologies of Siang-Yang Tan and Wendy Hofman. Healing prayers are offered by request.

     

  • Sessions

  • Intake and initial evaluations are conducted in the first two to three sessions. We usually schedule one 50-minute session per week. Some situations require longer or more frequent visits. The client will be expected to pay for scheduled appointments unless we are contacted by phone with an advance notice of cancellation of no less than 48 business hours.
