How NDIS Counselling Might Look
In working with NDIS clients, my primary goal is to help individuals to achieve their mental health and wellbeing goals. This means that I take a collaborative approach, working closely with each individual to identify their unique needs and develop a tailored treatment plan.
The first step in my process is to conduct an initial assessment, which involves gathering information about an individual’s mental health history, current symptoms, and goals for therapy. Based on this assessment, I will work with the individual to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals.
Once we have developed a treatment plan, we will begin regular therapy sessions. These sessions may be conducted in-person or online, depending on the individual’s preferences and needs. During each session, we will work together to explore the individual’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop strategies to help them manage any challenges they may be facing.
Throughout the therapy process, I am committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where individuals feel comfortable exploring their thoughts and feelings. I believe that trust and rapport are essential to successful therapy, and I work hard to build strong relationships with each of my clients.
