Coaching, Counselling and Psychotherapy
Is counselling or coaching for one person only or can I bring my family members?
The Redpath Centre currently offers individual, couples and family therapy and coaching depending on our client’s needs.
How do I know if a Redpath Associate is the right one for me?
All of our clinical associates have a minimum of five years experience in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders. A description of the therapist’s area of expertise, relevant experience, education and publications are available within each of the clinical associates profiles accessed through the “Associates” and “Clinical Affiliates” tabs on our website. If you feel that the associate that you met with is not the right one for you, we can make suggestions for you to meet with other clinicians who may be more suitable.
What approaches or theories do Associates use?
The Redpath Centre utilizes an inter-disciplinary and collaborative approach to ensure the most appropriate services for each person. Our clinical associates draw from a variety of theoretical frameworks and best practice evidence based on the problems or issues that clients raise at appointments.
How many appointments will I have and how often?
The frequency and total number of appointments varies based on the goals and action plans determined by the clinician and client. These concerns are usually discussed within the first session and are flexible as goals are revisited.
Will my sessions be kept confidential?
The Redpath Centre respects individual’s rights to privacy and confidentiality. Information shared with your therapist will not be used for additional purposes without your written consent. Some circumstances such as risk of harm to yourself or someone else, and risk of abuse or harm to a child are exceptions to the above policy. The Redpath Centre is proud to operate in accordance with the Code of Ethics of the provincial regulatory colleges governing our professions.
I feel I have autism, but do not have a professional diagnosis. Is a formal diagnosis required in order to receive services from you?
No, a formal diagnosis is not required in order to receive services. However, it may be helpful to receive a formal psychological assessment in the future in order to inform the therapeutic work we are engaged in together.
