We understand you may have some further questions. Here are some answers to common questions. Still have questions, contact us today!
Can I pick the gender of my counsellor?
At iCounselling we allocate a counsellor based on your questionnaire you complete when signing up. Your counsellor is selected based on the best match to support your needs and the counsellor’s specialty. If you must have a counsellor of a certain gender, iCounselling may not be the best service for you. You can not pick or request a specific gender.
