Assessment

 

Assessment

Assessment offers the opportunity to talk about presenting issues and give information to the assessing counsellor about the current situation. This is an opportunity to discover if SAGE Counselling will be able to meet the clients’ needs and their eligibility for counselling with us. The questions below will help the counsellor understand your presenting issues and start providing appropriate counselling. 

Questions likely to be asked during assessment
