How does Online Anxiety Counselling at Mind + Zest work?
Psychotherapy and Counselling services at Mind + Zest begin with a 15-minute intake session with one of our experienced intake specialists. In this hour, we will ask important questions to determine the area of improvement, severity, and treatment approach required to alleviate your anxiety:
When did the anxiety begin?
What are your unique symptoms associated with your anxiety?
What are your current coping mechanisms for anxiety?
What life situations are contributing to your anxiety and its severity?
We will also proceed with questions that provide insight into your personality. Here at Mind + Zest, we believe it’s very important that we get to know you to ensure that your counselor or therapist is the ‘right fit’ for you.
The consultation is also a wonderful time to address any questions you may have.
Finally, we will provide you with a personalized ‘plan of action’ – this includes the recommended anxiety counselor or therapist who s best equipped to suit your needs, a recommended duration of therapy (if applicable), and any additional testing or psychological services we believe would benefit you.
