Counselling Services

Welcome to Love Your Life Counselling. Below you can read more about what is offered and what to expect when you book your counselling or life coaching session.

 

Traditional Counselling

Your traditional face-to-face counselling sessions take place in my Ottawa centre town office, a welcoming and comfortable environment, where each session is conducted with utmost empathy, respect and confidentiality. I use an integrative approach to best meet the needs of each individual. Unless otherwise discussed and determined in advance by myself, each session is normally 60 minutes long.

 

The first session is devoted to gathering information and clarifying the nature of the client’s areas of need. The client will be asked to complete a simple but comprehensive intake questionnaire. The information shared is confidential and will aid in guiding the counselling process.  By the end of this first session, a tentative plan of action is drafted with short and long-term goals. This plan of action is adapted to the client’s needs and lifestyle, is flexible, and is revised as progress is evident. My approach is a collaborative model where teamwork between the client and myself is central to achieving the results desired. I invite you to read Ownership and Responsibility for a better understanding of how a collaborative model works. 

 

Payments for sessions are to be paid, in advance, via e-transfer. The fee for each one-hour counselling session is $130.00 plus $16.90 HST for a total of $146.90. I require 48 hours cancellation notice. Otherwise, the missed session will be invoiced at the regular rate.

Life Coaching

Life Coaching is essentially a “roll up your sleeves and let’s get to work” approach.

 

If you are an independent person and you know what you want but you just need help tapping into your own intuitive resourcefulness and new perspective on how to put wheels to your dreams, then Life Coaching is for you.

 

Whether you need assistance to improve some aspects of your personal life, business, relationships or your work, Life Coaching will, in a few sessions, get you moving in the right direction.   I will assist you in defining your goals, designing a plan of action, and setting a time schedule to achieve your goals. We will focus on how to increase your resourcefulness and tap into your own abilities and strengths. 


Life Coaching is available online for residents of Canada and Europe. At the onset, sessions are one hour. Once you are moving in the right direction, I offer 35 minutes ‘let zero in on your next step’ sessions, which help you stay focused, and actively pursuing your goals. 

 

Payments for sessions are paid in advance via e-transfer. One hour sessions are $130.00 plus $16.90 HST for a total of $146.90. My 35 minutes sessions are $75.00 plus $9.75 HST for a total of $84.75.

Online Counselling

Your Online Counselling sessions, via video platforms, are as effective and professional as face-to-face sessions. The clients must ensure they can secure a quiet environment with no disruptions in order to maximize the quality of each session.  Each session is conducted with utmost empathy, respect and confidentiality. As with traditional face-to-face counselling, great care is exercised to meet the needs of the clients and establish a therapeutic working relationship. Each session are 60 minutes.

 

The first session is devoted to gathering information and clarifying the nature of the client’s areas of need. The client will be asked prior to our first session to complete a simple but comprehensive intake questionnaire. The information shared is confidential and will aid in guiding the counselling process.  By the end of this first session, a tentative plan of action is drafted with short and long-term goals. This plan of action is adapted to the client’s needs and lifestyle, is flexible, and is revised as progress is evident. My approach is a collaborative model where teamwork between the client and myself is central to achieving the results desired. I invite you to read Ownership and Responsibility for a better understanding of how a collaborative model works.

 

Payments for sessions are to be paid, in advance, via e-transfer. The fee for each one-hour counselling session is $130.00 plus $16.90 HST for a total of $146.90. I require 48 hours cancellation notice. Otherwise, the missed session will be invoiced at the regular rate.

Ownership & Responsibility 

It takes courage to identify areas of needs and initiate the process of seeking help. I call that ownership and responsibility. Regardless of the issues or concerns you are facing, Counselling or Life Coaching helps discover and develop new skills that serve individuals for a life time.  Developing strong self-awareness and interpersonal skills for oneself promotes a healthy assertive lifestyle which equips individuals to face many of life’s challenges. Learning, unlearning and re-learning are necessary components of life and contribute to a well rounded satisfying journey . A collaborative model in counselling and life coaching is all about keeping an open mind as to each step that presents itself and showing up with curiosity to learn and give it your best shot. I believe every person is capable of much more than they can imagine and awakening that potential in my clients is one of my favourite thing to do. 

 

Waiting for you are new tools, new ideas, and a new perspective which can make a tremendous difference in your life. 

 

Take the first step, you will be pleasantly surprise at the results.
