Emergency Coverage: In the event of crisis clients are instructed to call 911 and seek assistance at the nearest crisis center. They are urged to call, or have a support person call Mr. Attryde to inform him so that an appointment can be arranged at the earliest possible time to ensure continuity of care. Clients are also urged to sign releases so that Mr. Attryde can consult with emergency physicians as necessary.

Privacy & Confidentiality: Confidentiality underpins psychological treatment by ensuring trust and emotional safety. NCES operates in accordance with ethical and legal guidelines governing the limits of confidentiality. These will be explained to you at the first consultation. Should you need Mr. Attryde to communicate with someone regarding your treatment, a signed release of information is required in order for him to do so.

Effective Counseling Factors

Define your goals. Think about what you would like to get out of counseling. It might be helpful to write a list of events, relationship issues, or feelings that you think are contributing to your distress.

Be an active participant. This is your counseling experience, so be as active as you can in deciding how to use the time. Be honest with the counselor and give her or him feedback about how you see the sessions progressing.

Be patient with yourself. Growth takes time, effort, and patience. All of your coping skills, behavior patterns, and self-perceptions have been learned and reinforced over a long period of time, so change can be difficult and slow at times.

Follow your counselor's recommendations. Take the time between sessions to complete any activities suggested by your counselor. Counseling is intended to improve your life in the "real world," so making efforts to try out and practice new behaviors, approaches, or ways of thinking could be a crucial element to the success of your counseling experience.
