- What happens in counseling? In a counseling session, the counselor and client seek to clearly describe the problem and create a strategy to solve or manage it. This occurs through specific steps, including assessment of the situation, setting goals and defining action steps to be taken.
- What is expected of me regarding counseling? Your responsibilities include being on time for appointments and giving 24-hour notice when you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. It will also help to be ready to focus on specific problems or issues, in order to make the most of your counseling session. At times you may be asked to do work on your own between sessions that may include reading, study projects and other developmental tasks.
- How do I make an appointment? You may call 631.822.3000 and leave a message or e-mail us and someone will contact you to make an appointment.
- Is there a fee? The counseling ministry is offered free of charge to members and regular attendees of Island Christian Church.
