Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN TO SEEK COUNSELLING?
The desire for a balanced and stable life is a lifelong pursuit. With everyday challenges we encounter, sometimes life can throw you a curveball when you least expected. Using the resources of an expert to help guide this journey can be life-changing. Through observations and active listening, the Counsellor can help you identify self-limiting behaviours into perspective. Good Counselling can serve as a positive life force. A wide variety of conditions ranging from relationship issues, career counselling, to major life transitions can occur in our lives. Having the help of a professional can help you enhance, understand and prepare for the challenges you face.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN MY FIRST SESSION?
The first counselling session can always be daunting. It is important to know that your problems do not define you. This session is to allow you to open up and explore your solutions.
Our counsellor, Zahira, is always open to chat about other topics than the ones you came in for.
The end goal of our session is for you to feel relieved about having someone to talk to about your troubles and empowered to solve them. 
DO YOU OFFER COUNSELLING FOR CHILDREN?
Yes, at Nuffield Wellness, we offer counselling sessions to teens and young adults.
Prior to the first counselling session, we would require children under 18 to have their parent or guardian sign a consent form to approve the sessions.
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF MY SESSIONS?
1. Be punctual for your appointments. 
When you are late, you are usually more panicky and hasteful. This impairs the session from starting on the right note.

 2.  Always be honest. 
The purpose of counselling is to give you an opportunity to speak to a professional freely. Be open about your thoughts, feelings and experiences. 

3. Keep a journal. 
Feelings and thoughts are very versatile. Keeping a journal of your previous counselling sessions helps you to keep track of your progress and how much you've learned over the course of your sessions. 
WHEN IS CONFIDENTIALITY BREACHED?
While we respect the client's need for privacy and confidentiality, there are however limitations to these boundaries of confidentiality. Should there be potential harm to self or others, Counsellor is obliged to tell relevant persons who can take the appropriate and responsible action to prevent such injury or harm.
According to the MSF Child Protection Act, Counsellor is ethically and legally responsible to report any abuse or violence (physical, mental, emotional, or neglect) of a child under the age of 18 to the proper authorities.
