Question

Can you meet with my child? I think he has a problem with drugs.

Answer

Yes, I can meet with your child if he wants to meet with me. My service is voluntary, so it is important that he want to meet with me. If he decides to not see me, you and I can still get together so that I can assist you to support your child.

What if I don’t want to meet with you, but my school counsellor thinks I should?

Answer

Your school counsellor has referred you to me, but it is really up to you to decide if you would like to continue to meet. I’m here for you, and if you would like to get together again, we can look at what you need to get out of our time together.

Question

Where would we meet?

Answer

We can meet wherever we decide. Sometimes it’s helpful to get moving … like walking on the beach, or a trail. Getting outside and moving can often help us feel better, and sometimes talking is much easier when we are doing something.
