Listening. Understanding. Exploring. Empowering.
A place to put your coat down, relax and be your authentic self. My role is to create a space for you to feel safe, secure, and curious about what you’re currently experiencing. Therapy that is collaborative and encourages you to have a say in what it looks like whether that looks like structure, free flow or a combination of both. We might explore emotional layers, attitudes, self-limiting beliefs, solutions, or develop new ways of being. This may be through conversation, activities, drawing, writing, or even games. Sessions have ebbs and flows, some meetings are deep dives, while others are more of a walk in the park. My hope is that you will leave our time together feeling more confident, self—aware and determined in who you are, how you want to be, and the tools you have in your kit to navigate new challenges as they arise.
Therapy as a process takes energy and effort from both you as a client and me as a therapist. I am committed to bringing my knowledge and best self to our sessions, ensuring the approach we take works for you as a human being that is unique, instead of a set of symptoms.
What are your fees?
Please reach out to discuss fees. I follow the BCACC recommended rates and have limited compassionate fee slots available.
Can I book an Intake Session?
Yes! I am currently taking on new clients. Please reach out via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org to book a consultation or www.sawahdannielscounselling.janeapp.com if you want to jump in with a full session.
I dont live in BC can I still work with you?
While I offer sessions online and can work cross provinces, some provinces are regulated. Ontario has title protection and protects the controlled act of psychotherapy. Quebec has title protection and activity protection. Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island have title protections. Alberta is in the process of regulating counselling services but has been delayed in roll out. Please reach out if you have questions and I can direct you to where to find the answer if I don't already know it!
If you are international please reach out to inquire.
Are you covered by insurance?
Coverage depends on the plan your employer signed up for so even within blue cross, green shield, manulife etc there is variation. I'm happy to consult with you on your plan and let you know. I am a CCC designation under the CCPA (Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association).
what ages do you work with?
I primarily work with people 18+, though I reserve a few spots for teens.
What's your cancellation policy?
I require 24 hours notice of cancellation, if less than 24 hours is provided the full rate will be billed. Exceptions are emergency based.
Are sessions in person or online?
Currently sessions are primarily online or over the phone. If you live in Nelson, BC I am able to offer walk and talk sessions
