The purpose of this document is to inform you clearly about the consultation session in which you will have the opportunity to participate. You will be interviewed by
Gail Palmer, certified EFT couple therapist and trainer, from Ottawa, ON for a family therapy session. In addition to providing a valuable therapeutic opportunity for you,
the session is part of therapists’ ongoing professional development. A number of therapists who are training in Emotionally Focused Therapy will be viewing the
session and they will participate in generating feedback for you. The goals of this session are two-fold: 1) to facilitate the process of your therapy; and 2) to add significantly
to the professional competence of therapists.
The session will last approximately 1hr to 1hr and 15min, after which the group will share some encouraging feedback for you. You will have opportunity to
respond to, if you wish, about the feedback and the overall experience. There is no cost for this consultation.

As is true with any type of counseling and therapy services, information you share can only be given out with your written permission.
