SOLA Counselling

Why SOLA

PSYCHO-EDUCATION

BE PART OF YOUR TREATMENT PLAN

SOLA uses science-based psychological education to increase your understanding of how feelings manifest themselves in physical symptoms. The therapeutic journey we embark on allows you to understand your markers of improvement, increasing overall empowerment. Through this education, you become an active participant in your healing.

What Is Counselling?

Counselling is the application of support towards mental health, using psychological and human development principles that include cognitive, behavioural, and systemic interventions to address overall wellness, personal growth, and pathology. Counselling can be applied to an acute issue or for a broader sense of self. Essentially, counselling provides insight within which you can grow. Through immense and ongoing training, accreditation, and experience, SOLA's practitioners are equipped to support clients within their diverse therapeutic journeys.

Your Mental Wellness

Counselling promotes wellness and clarity within areas of personal growth, specific career shifts, or other pathological concerns. In other words, counsellors support areas that involve relationships within oneself and others. Intra/inter-personal concerns related to 'meaning making', adjustment and acceptance are all part of therapeutic work that shifts many individual or cultural beliefs. Through this shift, therapy can assist in creating narratives that provide individuals and families with the ability to thrive in personal, educational, and career-related aspects of life.

ARE YOU NORMAL? THEN THERAPY IS FOR YOU!

Counselling meets the needs of a wide spectrum of people, and clients seen by counsellors may have general or acute situational or behavioural concerns that can be addressed and adjusted within therapeutic work. Counselling is theory-based, and SOLA’s counsellors draw from many relevant theoretical approaches for individuals, couples, or families.

Here is a video that helps to explain psychotherapy and why it might be the best thing you can do for yourself and your overall well-being. After all, happy people are healthier and healthier people thrive.

YOUR THERAPEUTIC JOURNEY

HOW WE WORK & WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

SESSION LENGTH

Our sessions maximize your client's time, ensuring you utilize the entire time of every session. What this means is if you book a 60-, 90- or 120-minute session, you will receive at least the indicated time for your appointment. Your counsellor takes their session notes AFTER your session. We also note that sometimes sessions might need to be extended a little; we allow enough time between sessions to support these requirements.

PROFESSIONAL LIVING SPACES

We designed our SOLA offices to feel like a home. We focus on comfort and calmness to ensure you feel relaxed and secure within the SOLA space. Each appointment room includes HEPA Air Filtration, cozy blankets, ice packs, essential oils when requested, a multitude of beverages, snacks, and waterfront views. We welcome you to our space and hope it provides a safe and comfortable environment for therapeutic healing.

RATES

SOLA's pricing is based on the entire time of YOUR appointment rather than including the practitioner's reflection time. We have competitive rates that reflect bespoke treatment plans, external case consultation (when required), and session follow-ups. Our prices include GST, so the price you see is what you pay.

APPOINTMENT BOOKING ON YOUR TIME

SOLA has removed the hassle of having to book counselling appointments within office hours by using an online portal for client ease. SOLA uses the JANE, our client management system, that provides reminders for your next session, detailed billing history, and private client info in one safe and secure space. Clients can book and shift appointments easily and on their own time through this system at a moment's notice.

BILLING ON YOUR TERMS

SOLA is focused on the therapeutic relationship. As such, we do not stress about pre-session billings. You can pay for the session directly from our Jane client management system.

CANCELLATION? YOU’RE HUMAN

We understand that life is messy, and occasions arise when you may need to cancel appointments. Don't worry! You can do this through our online booking platform when cancellations are within the no-cancellation policy window. Just reach out to your counsellor --t we will help you figure out the next steps.

We offer complementary 15-minute consultations to support you.

This consultation session will enable our practitioners to understand your needs and ensure we are an ideal fit for you. Much like dating, we want to make certain a ‘connection’ with your practitioner is created and encourage all prospective clients to have a free consultation prior to booking an entire session.
