Individual Counselling is a collaborative effort between a client and his/her counsellor. Anger Management Centre of Toronto Inc. provides individual-based counselling services in an open, supportive and confidential environment that helps clients to address and work through the issues that are of concern to them.
Sharing these concerns with a professionally experienced counsellor who assists clients to cope with difficult circumstances and overcome barriers can be very helpful in promoting healing and self-growth.
Counselling is offered on a short or long term basis by trained professional counsellors. The usual time for an individual counselling session is usually between fifty (50) minutes to one (1) hour; often a preliminary assessment is completed which helps to guide the counselling process.
Group counselling involves one or more counsellors working with several people at the same time.
Anger Management Centre of Toronto Inc. provides group counselling in a safe environment where individuals can interact and experiment with new behaviours, improve communication skills, and receive feedback from people with similar concerns and interests. Some groups focus on specific skills and themes while others provide emotional support and psycho-education for group members.
The Centre offers group counselling sessions from time to time. These are usually arranged in advance and the fees are usually lower than individual counselling sessions.
Advantages/Benefits of Group Counselling:
Group counselling allows clients to receive the emotional support and encouragement of the other members of the group which can help to cope with their challenges.
Group members may serve as role models to other members of the group. Hope is often promoted when individuals can relate to other group members who are successfully coping with their challenges.
This can help foster feelings of success and accomplishment.
Group therapy is cost effective and offers a safe environment to talk about confidential matters and challenges. Group counselling allows individuals to practice behaviours and actions within the safety and security of the group.
By working in a group, counsellors can provide valuable feedback tp group members.
*Require that individuals complete an initial intake session with one of the counsellors in order to carefully assess appropriateness.
