Assessment

 

Assessment

We offer an initial telephone assessment to give you the opportunity to talk about presenting issues. You will be given the opportunity to discover if Sage Counselling will be able to meet your needs and your eligibility for counselling with us. The questions below will help the assessment counsellor understand your presenting issues and start providing appropriate counselling. Sometimes the assessment can be carried out in the home if the client has hearing difficulties. 

Questions likely to be asked during assessment

How do you feel about seeing a counsellor face to face and would you be willing to agree with your counsellor about how to maintain both yours and the counsellors safety?

Have you ever had counselling before? If yes, what was it for?
