The Next Step
If you would like to arrange an appointment or you need more information, please contact me in confidence using the telephone number or e-mail address which can be found Here.
As well as gaining an understanding of the reasons why you want to engage in therapy and what you would like to achieve, the first session is also to establish that the therapy I offer is right for you, that there are no medical or ethical reasons that would prevent us from working together and that you are comfortable working with me. There is also a small amount of paperwork to complete which will be fully explained during the session.
The remainder of the session and subsequent sessions are for you to talk about the issues that have brought you to counselling and for us to work through them together. The number of sessions required will depend on the nature of the issues you wish to address and the outcome you are looking for. However, during the first appointment I will give you an indication of the number which might be required and we will review this periodically in future sessions.
