What to Discuss Before the Meeting
The mandate is still the same, what we talk about is still confidential, unless, you are feeling unsafe or wanting to harm yourself, you are wanting to harm others, and lastly, if you report any type of child abuse, then I will need to report to appropriate agencies and/or parent/guardian.
There are risks involved with meeting via phone/Google Meets such as poor internet service and dropping calls. One thing to think about is your surroundings to maintain confidentiality. The majority of us are all at home with our families, so if possible, try to find a quiet area where you can meet for the sessions. The benefits of sessions are that you will still have ongoing support. This may be an easier way to access support.
The best way to schedule a session is to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide me with your student ID number in the email. I will use this to confirm our sessions and as a meeting code. Sessions will last for approximately 45 minutes, depending on the need. Sessions may not need the entire 45 minutes. We can schedule out weekly at each session. Again, if you don’t feel that you need it, just email me to cancel the session. Session times are between 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, weekdays.
