Individual Counselling

Our culture places a lot of importance on self-reliance. We like to feel we are in control of our lives. But sometimes an outside perspective can help you make real breakthroughs in building the life you want.

Individual counselling at Steadfast is an opportunity to talk about the things that concern you.

Our counselling approach lets you consider your life in the context of the many relationships you have – with family, co-workers, and friends. We look at how those relationships impact the way you feel and how those feelings can impact your behaviour. We also may look at how the past impacts the present.  Individual counselling is a unique experience of having someone working with you (in your corner) and supporting you to take the best next steps for yourself.

We help you by giving you the space and guidance to discover the insights that are right for you.

Our goal is to help you better understand yourself and how your relationships are impacting your life. You don’t need to be at the end of your rope, or feeling like there’s no way out before you consider counselling.

Your concerns might range from wanting to revisit past relationships, to putting your present-day emotions into perspective. You may be seeking help to reach an important decision, or create new patterns in your life. Your situation may concern any area or areas of your life, such as family or a significant relationship or personal issues, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, grief, sexuality, or money issues.

Whatever the topic, we listen and offer you tools to better understand your own behaviours and reactions.

This applies to both the good and bad things that are part of your life. With that information in hand, in the course of your individual counselling journey, you will find it easier to live according to your values and principles and find the confidence to trust your own ability to decide what’s right for you.

Our counsellors are trained to assist clients in a wide variety of ways. These are a few of the common types of counselling that clients seek.
