How we’re different
Clearheart counsellors work collaboratively, which means that you benefit from the professional expertise of an entire team. We do this through our case consulting process. Case consulting means that the personal information and details of a client remain entirely confidential, while the therapeutic aspects of a situation can be anonymously reviewed with the team to gain new insights and fresh approaches. Ultimately this benefits the client, while maintaining full confidentiality.
Because the team works in relationship with each other, we also know each other’s areas of strength, and practice interests. When working with your counsellor, if there’s a specific issue that you would benefit more from another counsellor’s approach – that will be offered as an option. Your complete success is our collective aim.
