What you can expect from your first session:

I believe counselling sessions can help an individual understand the process and changes of personal development and help towards the purpose of helping oneself. While I can give you suggestions or directions, I hope to explore your feelings, choices and goals. I also realize that you live in various systems (family, work and culture) that may impact your life in different ways, and counselling must involve these components throughout the session.
