Growing Together: The Unique Benefits of Choosing a Student Counsellor

Hello, future client! Embarking on the therapy path is a significant and courageous decision. As you consider your options, one valuable option may be working with a student counsellor like me.


As I navigate the early stages of my career, I bring a fresh perspective, boundless enthusiasm, and a genuine commitment to supporting you on your journey towards self-discovery and personal growth. In this blog post, I’ll offer a glimpse into the world of therapy from the perspective of an intern counsellor and what you stand to gain from booking a session with me.


Fresh Perspective and Enthusiasm


As I am completing my Master of Counselling while practising, I am exposed to the latest therapeutic approaches and research, and I am eager to apply my knowledge to create meaningful and impactful sessions. My enthusiasm is not just about meeting the requirements of my training; it’s a genuine passion for helping individuals like you navigate life’s challenges. I bring a unique energy to our sessions to create an atmosphere of exploration and discovery. 


Affordability and Accessibility


Therapy can be quite costly, which is a concern for most when thinking about starting their journey. Sessions with me are offered at reduced prices! These lower prices make therapy more accessible, ensuring that you receive the support you need without the added stress of high costs. Also, as I am just starting out, my calendar is fairly open, so you can pick a time that best fits your schedule. Your well-being is important to me and I am dedicated to making therapy a practical and feasible option for you.


Supervised Guidance


While I am in the early stages of my career, let me assure you that your therapeutic journey is not without guidance. I work directly with my supervisor, Jessie Dhaliwal, to ensure that my clients are getting the best care. I review my clients’ sessions with Jessie on a regular basis, in a collaborative approach that gives you a blend of innovative insights from a fresh perspective and the seasoned wisdom of an experienced therapist. Together, we create a supportive space for your exploration, ensuring a holistic and dynamic approach to your therapeutic journey.


Inclusivity and Collaborative Growth


My training places a strong emphasis on cultural humility and inclusivity. Cultural humility involves a commitment to self-reflection, self-critique, and learning about one’s own biases. This approach recognizes and respects the inherent worth and dignity of individuals from different cultures, and I enter relationships with clients with the intention of honouring their beliefs, customs, and values. Your unique identity and background are not just respected but also celebrated in our sessions. I see our therapeutic relationship as a partnership, a mutual learning experience, where I actively seek your feedback. Your feedback helps shape the direction of our sessions and ensures that your treatment aligns with your goals.


On this journey of collaborative growth, I empower you to take an active role in your personal development. As I continue to refine my skills and grow in my profession, I am dedicated to providing you with a therapeutic space that is both supportive and actively tailored to your unique needs.


So, if you’re considering therapy, let’s embark on this journey together! I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your path to self-discovery and well-being.

Your new Student Counsellor
