What does an introductory session look like?
Chalanie’s intro is with the parents or guardians of the adolescent client. She takes a thorough history of the presenting problem as well as an overview of the family.
Jessica’s intro is with the individual adult client, and a thorough history is taken in order to explore how the presenting problems can be meaningfully resolved.
Are you offering face to face meetings?
Yes, we are. Per our current health and safety guidelines, we require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all meetings held in person. Masks are still required to be worn during the session.
Is a virtual meeting an option?
Yes! We offer both virtual and face to face meetings. We accommodate local and non-local clients via virtual meeting platforms. Note: we meet via secure platforms and do not record our virtual meetings.
Can you help with emergency situations?
No. We are not equipped to support any form of psychiatric or mental health emergency. If you or someone you know intends to hurt themselves or someone else, go to the nearest emergency room for assistance.
Do you offer any other services?
Yes. We facilitate group and corporate workshops that can be tailored to the specific needs of the organisation. These workshops can be virtual or in person. Please email email@example.com with details of your request and we will let you know if it can be facilitated.
What's the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist?
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specialises in mental health issues. A psychologist (like us) is a clinician who treats mental health issues with non-medical interventions. Psychologists and psychiatrists often work together to tackle different aspects of the same issue.
Do you do assessments and/or diagnose disorders like ADHD?
No, we do not offer assessments and we do not diagnose such disorders.
