What is Counselling?

Everyone’s counselling experience is unique. Meetings are tailored to your needs and what works best for you. There is no issue too big or too small to bring up in your counselling session. Tyndale counsellors have experience addressing issues such as boundaries, self-esteem, addiction, conflict management, self-care, time-management, depression, grief and more.  The Counselling Department also offers personality and vocational inventories including Myers Briggs, Work Personality Index and more.

How Does Counselling Work?

Your counselling experience will begin with an intake appointment. An intake appointment is conducted as the first session in order to discuss your needs, history, and reasons for attending counselling. During this appointment, the intake counsellor will determine with you how your needs can be best met, which TyndaleCounselling-02counsellor will be the best fit for you, and will also provide resources that can be helpful going forward.

After the intake appointment, you and your counsellor can discuss how often you wish to meet, what topics you will discuss, and reevaluate regularly what is working and what can be improved to provide the best experience possible.

What Other Resources Are Available?

You can attend seminars and events throughout the year to learn more about issues such as mental health, stress management, and communication. The counselling department also offers online materials that address issues such as anger, shame, abuse, exam preparation, stress burnout and more.
