What will we do in a counselling session

At Dark Wood Counselling, each counselling session is dedicated entirely to you and lasts for one hour.

However, the specifics of what happens in a session can vary based on your unique needs and preferences.

Here are some examples of what a session might involve:

  1. Talking: Engaging in open and honest conversation about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

  2. Expressive Therapy: Utilizing forms of expressive therapy such as drawing, collage, or painting to explore emotions and express yourself creatively.

  3. Using Cards: Using emotion cards, values cards, imagery cards, or animal cards to tell a story, express desires, or discuss concerns.

  4. Safety Planning: Developing a safety plan to manage challenging situations or emotions effectively.

  5. Coping Strategies: Learning and practicing different coping strategies to navigate difficult emotions or situations.

  6. Goal Setting: Working together to identify and set future goals, hopes, and dreams.

  7. Psychoeducation: Receiving relevant information and education about mental health, coping skills, or other topics relevant to your well-being.

As you can see, counselling sessions can take many different forms. If any of these approaches resonate with you or if you have questions about how we can tailor sessions to meet your needs, please don't hesitate to reach out. Your counselling experience is personalized to support your growth and well-being.
