Concierge counselling means that we will come to you! Your counselling session can occur in any location you are comfortable in.

Though we do have a space reserved for administrative work, session preparation, and note/report writing, we find holding sessions in other locations is preferred by many clients.

We have seen clients within their own homes, at offices, coffee shops, restaurants, parks (this is a perfect place to meet if you don’t have childcare for your kids), malls, and even events or parties!

This is simple! It is essentially “hiding in plain sight”! The name Amicus is Latin for friend, and our service is modelled to make counselling an easy and pleasurable experience. Our counselling sessions are much like talking to a friend – with the advantage that we are trained and licensed professionals! When meeting at a restaurant, for example, an observer would simply think you are catching up with a friend. Of course, if you are concerned about being overheard, then we can find a more private location, such as your home or office. If you’re having trouble deciding where to meet, just let us know your needs and preference and we will do our very best to find a location for you.

We recognize that traditional, office-based service is not necessarily for everyone. Instead of dictating when and where you meet with us, our concierge counselling services are flexible to your needs and schedule. You may feel intimidated or overwhelmed at the prospect of counselling, and might be more comfortable in your own space. Or, perhaps it is difficult for you to fit counselling sessions and travel time in your schedule. You may have children or accessibility concerns and would prefer to meet in your home. Or you may be concerned with being spotted entering a counselling centre. You might even just seek a more informal counselling session. Whatever the case may be, we are happy to work with you to ensure your needs are met!

We do not have set hours in order to better accommodate the needs of our clients. We are very flexible and understanding of the evolving needs of our clients, which often means evening or weekend appointments. We are happy to work with you to accommodate your needs.

As with our hours, we are very flexible on the days we are available. We will work with you to accommodate your needs within your schedule.
