Hello Dear One,
So, I'm so glad YOU made it here...
First I will say that I currently have a waitlist for 1:1 work, so I am happy to either add you to that list OR I can refer you to one of our amazing team counsellors at Through the Dark Woods. All of our counsellors are trained and experienced in working with grief & trauma, and have worked closely with me for many months if not years.
One thing to consider is that filling out this application form can also serve as an opportunity for some deeper reflection for you, if you want, so I want to invite you to take your time with it, go slow, and fill it out thoughtfully.
Though you might also be in a place where it's more like, "Must get support now, writing about my shit right now is too much." And that's also okay, then in that case just keep it simple.
By the way, also, I'm the only one who reads these, not even my assistant comes in here, this is a secure form and I abide by the ethic of confidentiality as laid out by the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists.
There are, however, the following exceptions to confidentiality: i) When disclosure is required to prevent clear and imminent danger to the client or others; ii) When legal requirements demand that confidential material be revealed; iii) When a child or one from the vulnerable sector is in need of protection.
So now that we're clear, know that I treat the words you do share as sacred, and I look forward to hearing from you very much.
Josea Tamira Crossley, RTC
