Below you'll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our counselling & therapeutic services here at BLFC.
1. Do I need to be a Christian to come to BLFC?
BLFC welcomes individuals, families, couples and children from all backgrounds and faiths. Clients will always be informed of our faith-based approach to therapy and will not be discriminated against should they choose not to engage in our approaches.
2. How long are the sessions?
All regular sessions are an hour (60 minutes) in length whereas all “First Sessions” are an hour and fifteen - thirty minutes (75 - 90 minutes) in length to make provision for the completion of the initial assessment process that starts online during your online signup. The exact length is determined by the type of "first session" you have. All sessions thereafter vary between an hour and an hour and fifteen minutes in length.
3. Is every session really confidential?
Conversations with our counsellors are kept in strict confidence. If there is a need to disclose information from files and records with another professional (medical doctor, lawyer) or if we are ordered by law, then the client will be consulted or informed before hand.
4. How are counsellors assigned to each client?
Counsellors are assigned to clients based on their areas of expertise, availability for appointments, and other factors identified as important by the client (age, gender, etc).
5. Does BLFC prescribe medicine?
We do not prescribe medications as we do not provide medical or psychiatric services.

What Clients are Saying...
I received support provided in the form of counselling, which helped to put my information, challenges and concerns into perspective. Using a God-centered approach, Tricia often reframed my concerns and challenges into a structure that was encompassed by God’s word. I often felt renewed and encouraged after each session.
