Individual therapy is conducted in a safe, non-judgmental, and private setting with our qualified drug and alcohol counsellor. With the help of our generous donors and the City of Delta, we offer 6 free one-on-one sessions to individuals and families who reside in Delta.
What can I expect when I see a counsellor for the first time?
This will be an opportunity for you and a helping professional to talk about why you are interested in counselling and to explore how we might be able to best meet your needs. The counsellor will usually gather information, explain the types of counselling services available on site (both group and individual), and work with you to create a treatment plan. This could mean attending group and individual sessions here, working with members of your family, or working on a referral to an organization that is better suited to meet your needs.
What happens in treatment?
Our goal is to serve you in a timely manner. The first few sessions are spent building a relationship with your counsellor, after which sessions focus progressively more on generating and maintaining motivation to change. Your counsellor will work with you to find out what supports and strengths you already have in place, and these are used as a starting point to making changes. Likely, you will also be invited to participate in one of the groups we offer, in order to buttress the progress you are making in individual sessions. Sometimes, a referral might be made out to another organization, if your needs cannot be met appropriately here, at the Little House.
