Personal Consultations

One of our most popular and valuable services is our personalized consultations.  Whether it is one-on-one, a whole family, or an entire care team, these consultations focus on providing customized information and support based on the individual’s situation.

Clients may have a free consultation at any time. Some common reasons to book a consultation include:

  • Seeking information and support for a new diagnosis, or a possible diagnosis;
  • Seeking information and preparing for an appointment with a GP or neurologist, so time is optimized and important questions are asked;
  • Seeking information and support upon entering a life transition
  • From pediatric care to adult care;
  • From living at home to living away from home;
  • While attending school;
  • When considering parenthood;
  • When caring for aging family members (primary caregivers);
  • When considering a surgical treatment plan.

Our consults provide:

  • A supportive consultant who also lives with epilepsy, and can therefore understand your situation;
  • Advice, supported by research, on lifestyle decisions which can affect the severity and frequency of seizures, and may lead to lower doses of medication and fewer side effects;
  • Counselling services for anxiety and depression as they relate to living with epilepsy;
  • An opportunity to connect to other clients who have been through similar situations;
  • Information on how to be the best, most educated patient for yourself and your physician;
  • Career advice, career counselling, and information on how to navigate the BC Human Rights processes when necessary, offered by a Chartered Professional, Human Resources (CPHR);
  • An opportunity for referral to appropriate programs or groups at HeadWay and in the community
