LGBTIQA young person talks about coming out with a Twenty10 counsellor in Sydney.

What can I expect?

Initial appointments are for 90 minutes and involve a counselling assessment. All following appointments are for 50-60 minutes unless otherwise negotiated. Counselling is based on an initial 6 sessions, after which we review your progress. You may require just a few sessions, or there may be other concerns that you’d like to explore further.

The counsellor will check in with you to see what you want and what your priorities are. It’s okay to feel nervous about getting help for the first time. You can bring along a friend or family member to help support you. You’ll probably be asked a lot of questions on your first visit. This is to make sure all the important issues are covered, and to help develop the best solution for you.

As you get to know and trust your counsellor you will probably find that talking about what is going on gets easier.

At your appointment, feel free to ask questions about anything that’s on your mind so the worker can help you find the best solution.
