What to expect in therapy and counselling at Bliss.

Let's break it down and ease your nerves.

Bliss Counselling offers a wide array of services tailored to meet your needs.

Whether through Couple Sessions, Private Intensive Sessions, Individual Sessions, Virtual Sessions, Education, Workshops, or Teleseminars and Consultancy, our traditional approach to providing therapeutic counselling services includes a three to four step process.

Step 1


If you are unsure about counselling or the counselling process, Bliss Counselling offers a complimentary consultation in order for you to feel comfortable prior to committing to the therapeutic process.

During this informal meet and greet, we will discuss your goals in seeking counselling to ensure you are matched with the most appropriate Bliss specialist to meet your needs. This consultation is also a perfect time to address any questions you may have. You can then decide if therapy is something you wish to invest in. If yes, we will book your first appointment at a time that suits your schedule.

Step 2


During your first session, we will go through a client intake form and ask important questions to get a better understanding of your personality and a greater understanding of the nature of your problems. The objective of the first session is for you and your therapist to get to know one another and collaborate in establishing your short and long-term goals. We will then discuss a treatment plan and (if applicable) a recommended duration of therapy.

Some of our clients find that a few sessions are helpful, but the majority of our clients attend weekly or bi-weekly sessions on a long-term basis.

Step 3


After your initial session, you will meet with your Bliss Specialist regularly to explore and work towards achieving your goals. Your Bliss therapist will structure the sessions to fit your particular personality and learning style by utilizing a number of Counselling and Psychotherapy methodologies.

We will always ask how you are feeling at the end of each session to ensure you are comfortable with the direction and progress. All sessions will be 50-55 minutes in length (unless you are participating in an intensive, 3-hour focused therapy session).

At Bliss, we honour and respect every client’s boundaries and desire for what they want out of therapy. We find that the best work is achieved when the trust you and your Bliss therapist have built together is strong. This allows your therapy to evolve as you do.

Step 4


During the last session of your recommended treatment plan, we will evaluate progress made to date and re-cap any important learnings/discoveries throughout the course of your therapeutic journey. We will also evaluate where you are now and how you are feeling.

Counselling and psychotherapy are so individualized and everyone can require a different amount of time, therefore we may recommend you continue with another treatment plan. However, if you have made a significant amount of progress and you are feeling comfortable and more confident, we will conclude the session by reminding you that you are always welcome back for a check-in session at any time!

Let us help you find your perfect match.
