Counselling is a therapeutic technique that most often focuses on providing support for people working through issues arising from past trauma or events. Coaching tends to be more motivational and oriented toward collaborative brainstorming for future endeavours. Consulting has elements of both counselling and coaching. It promotes goal-setting and troubleshoots obstacles, and where appropriate, includes advice consistent with the consultant’s scope of practice.
Due to the time and financial commitment involved in individual consulting packages, and the very limited availability of these packages at any one time, it is really important that we assess one another to ensure our professional relationship will be a good fit.
Research shows this is the minimum amount of time needed to effect lasting change.
Consulting packages are meant to be one-time investments that provide you with the resources and tools necessary to continue with ongoing lifestyle changes, much the same as investing in education (as opposed to ongoing therapy).
Payment installment options can be discussed on an individual basis.
At this time, health and wellness consulting is NOT covered by personal health insurance, and even though I am a registered physiotherapist, these services do not fall under that umbrella and cannot be claimed as such.
While it is important that we both do our best to make sure the initial commitment is the best fit, I understand that certain situations can arise that are not under our control. This could happen on my end as well. If a specific situation arises, it will be evaluated to see what alternative solutions can be arranged.
