What to expect
If you’re an adult seeking therapy, your intake session will involve questions about your history and why you’re seeking counselling. We’ll gather the background information about past and present issues to help direct our approach.
For young children or pre-teens, the intake session involves only the parent or caregiver. We’ll explore your child’s family history and background, as well as the symptoms your child is experiencing.
With teen children, the caretaker or parent is present for the first session. We’ll discuss why they’re seeking counselling and the importance of confidentiality. The child can then choose whether or not they want the parent or caregiver to be part of the session.

Extended Benefits Plans

If cost is a true challenge, there are numerous programs that provide counselling for very little cost or none at all. Community service agencies, schools, universities and counselling agencies with student or intern programs are all worth exploring. Fraser River Counselling’s student program is a good place to start.
Money can be a complicated issue, especially in challenging times. Our first priority is to ensure clients get the services they need. If you’d like to discuss your payment options, we’re here to help.
