I ask that on your first session, you arrive a few minutes early with the necessary paperwork (see below) completed. I will need these for my files. Please let me know in advance if you do not have access to a printer. We can arrange then to have you arrive 20 minutes ahead of time in that case so I can provide you with the paperwork and you can complete it in the waiting room.
Please note there have been changes made to the consent forms below as of March 2020 regarding privacy and security, and communication, as well as to sessions during an illness.
The Consent for Release of Information form is generally only needed once or if we decide to bring others into therapy — such as family doctors, family members, and so on. It is advisable to complete this form in the case of couples counselling. I will at that time, have you become more specific.
The Walking Talking Consent Form may not be applicable. If you think you might like to try it at some point, it could be helpful to complete it in advance.
