1. 50-Minute Consultation
All types of counselling therapy here at KMA Therapy begin with a 50 minute consultation with one of our intake counsellors. In these fifty minutes, we will ask important questions to determine the nature of the problem and treatment approach needed. We’re also asking questions to get a better sense of your personality
We believe this first therapeutic consultation is very important so we find you a counselor who is the ‘right fit’. The consultation is also a wonderful time to address any questions you may have.
Here we will also provide you with a customized ‘plan of action’ – this includes the recommended adoption counselor who is best equipped to suit your needs, a recommended duration of therapy (if applicable), and any additional testing or psychological services we feel would be helpful.
The fee for 50-minute consultations is $190 and this is usually covered by your workplace benefits package.
2. 50-Minute Weekly Sessions
After your first consultation, you will attend sessions at our clinic on a weekly basis with your assigned therapist for the recommended treatment duration of cognitive-behavioural
therapy. Here, our objective is to work through the treatment plan, goals, and objectives set in your initial consultation. All sessions after the consultation are 50 minutes in length.
3. Finish and Evaluate
After completing the recommended program, we check in for another consultation appointment to check in on what your experience was like. If you’re still struggling (and everyone takes a
different amount of time to work through issues), we may recommend continued CBT to keep you on the right track. If you’re feeling like you’ve made significant
improvement in your issues, your weekly therapy ends here. We will likely give you reading materials to help you along the way and you’re welcome to come back for a check-in session at any time. After your therapy, we always love to hear how you’re doing and what you’ve accomplished!
