Common Questions about Therapy
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THERAPY?
The first session is usually the therapist asking you questions to get to know you better and identifying areas of need to focus on. Together you create a plan which will move you towards your goals in therapy. Sessions include sharing thoughts, discovering new perspectives, and identifying alternative ways to cope. Some clients request specialized therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Solution-Focused therapy, whereas others find talk therapy supportive. It is always designed to suit whatever you find most helpful. Sessions also can differ pending your specific concern or goal for that day.
HOW DO I KNOW IF THERAPY IS A GOOD FIT?
The goodness of fit between the therapist and you as the client is important to allow for growth and inner change. The therapist or you always has a right to end a session or services if they feel it is no longer a fit. It is important you feel safe and trust the therapist in order to be vulnerable and to allow inner transformation. Realign offers a free 15-minute phone consultation.

HOW LONG DO I DO THERAPY FOR?
This is unique to each individual and their goals. Some clients feel better after one session, while others require ongoing sessions to maintain stability. Services are flexible to allow you to choose what works for you and this will be discussed during your first session. Clients are also welcome to reach out for crisis intervention sessions as they feel necessary.
