There is a $95 fee per one-hour session for 'one-on-one' counselling. For those people in financial difficulty, a sliding scale is available.

The primary model used in the centre is Reality Therapy, developed by Dr. William Glasser.

Reality Therapy is an active process that helps people find effective ways to live their lives. It was developed in the mid 1960s by Dr. William Glasser, who was influenced by W.T. Powers' control therapy model. Reality Therapy provides a framework for evaluating needs, wants, actions, thoughts, feelings and physiological perceptions. It is concerned with personal responsibility and commitment and, although the emphasis is on the present, planning for successful experiences and growth is also a key component.

Counsellors who practice reality therapy provide a warm caring environment in which clients tell their stories, explore their emotions, examine their lifestyles and work through their present circumstances. Supporting clients through loss and significant life changes with reality therapy involves four important and often interrelated components:

  • Exploration of wants, needs, perceptions and emotions
  • Exploration of past and present total behaviours
  • Evaluation of present behaviours, lifestyles and situations, and deciding whether or not to change.
  • Making plans for change that are simple, attainable, specific and measurable These plans focus on doing rather than not doing, are immediate and controlled by the planner

Reality Therapy provides an empowering and educational experience for clients. It is a positive approach to counselling that allows people to make significant life changes and transitions that go far beyond the counselling experience.
