In a single session, individuals can address their immediate concerns with a trained healthcare professional, who will help individuals explore and understand their problems and assist in forming solutions.

Together, the individual and the counsellor will form a treatment plan.

Brief counselling helps to connect patients with the appropriate services and resources needed to help improve their overall wellbeing and functioning.
