One-On-One Counseling For Social Anxiety And Social Skills
Aside from writing about social skills, I'm also a licensed counselor. If you want to improve your social life or self-confidence I can give you personalized, one-on-one help.
I'm not currently taking new clients or adding to my waitlist. I'll update this page when that changes.
- At the moment I'm only working with clients who live in Ontario, Canada. Unfortunately I'm not seeing people from other provinces or countries right now.
- I currently work with clients who are 18-years-old and older.
- I do sessions online through video chat.
- Each 60-minute session is $125 CDN. I offer a sliding scale.
- I'm a Registered Social Worker (RSW) - If you have an insurance or benefits package that allows you to see a social worker, sessions with me are likely covered by it. Though check with your provider to be sure, of course.
If you're thinking of working with me please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, briefly explaining what areas you'd like my help with.
From there we can schedule a free consultation video chat where you can ask me any questions you have, and get a sense of whether I'd be a good fit for you.
If you're the parent of a young adult who you think could benefit from working with me, please pass my contact information on to them and let them get in touch with me directly.
More on social skills and social confidence counseling
Through counseling you can get individual support to help you feel more confident and improve your social life.
We'll work together to address the social areas that are most important to you, whether it's making friends, having better conversations, or feeling less anxious and insecure around people. Working with a counselor is a faster, more efficient way to make changes than trying things on your own. You can benefit from my experience and the research-supported counseling approaches I use.
What are one-on-one sessions like?
In our first meeting I'll get to know you and learn about the areas you feel you're struggling in, and what you'd like to achieve. I'll also learn about your overall life and background, to get a fuller picture of you.
We'll develop a plan to address the social goals that are most important to you. The plan is just a flexible starting point, and we can tweak it as we go, so it can adapt to any changes in your circumstances or priorities.
I'll give you customized advice and education on things like social strategies, thought patterns, and anxiety-reduction skills. I'll also give you specific feedback to help you improve more quickly. I may give you written or practical assignments to do between sessions, so you can make progress when you're not just directly speaking to me. If it seems baggage from your past is impeding your progress, we can address that.
As your counselor, I'll help you stay motivated and on track.. I'll help you face the necessary, but sometimes challenging, work of pushing yourself beyond what you'd normally do. While you may be asked to step outside your comfort zone to grow, our work together will proceed at a pace that suits you. I'll encourage you to expand your limits, but won't pressure you or make you do anything you don't want to.
As you make progress we'll celebrate your successes and plan next steps for further improvements. Over time you should feel more and more relaxed and confident at social gatherings, and more comfortable meeting people, expressing yourself, and making friends.
Once again, if you're curious about working with me drop me a line at email@example.com, briefly covering what problem areas you'd like to change. After that we can schedule a free consultation video chat.
