The Intake Appointment

What happens at an intake appointment?

During the first session, each student will normally meet with an Intake Counsellor for a 45-minute introductory conversation where they will get to know more about you, your background and about your reasons for coming to Counselling Services. This intake session allows us to:

  • Determine if our services are a good match for your needs.
  • Establish together which counsellor might be the best 'fit' for you and book the first appointment.
  • Provide you with helpful resources and information in going forward.

If you have previously been to Tyndale Counselling Services and are a returning client, you may be asked to make another intake appointment (re-intake).
