Individual Counselling

Counselling Services with Erinn can be accessed two different ways:

1. Visit the Individual Counselling page and book an appointment (50 minute appointments)

Your first appointment with Erinn will be an Intake appointment where you will be able to discuss your concerns and construct a plan with Erinn for treatment, based on your goals. Follow up appointments are 50 minutes in length.

2. Visit the Weekend Consult Clinic page and book an appointment (30 minute consult appointments)

This clinic is for new clients who may not feel that they are in need of several counselling appointments, but have questions and are looking for assessment and recommendation in a single session. For example, you may have felt lately like you have low mood but are unsure if you need treatment for depression. If treatment is recommended and you decide to book with providers of Country Counselling, that is a possibility after attending the weekend consult clinic.
