How do I start?
Arranging a first appointment is a significant step that may follow a long process of search and contemplation, or after reaching a point of crisis in your life, perhaps feeling an urgent need for support, to offload and to be heard and understood.
I offer a number of arrangements and recommend you to contact me to discuss your specific requirements. Sessions are usually sixty minutes in duration at a regular time once per week. This is agreed between us at the assessment stage and we will schedule these appointments at mutually agreeable times. Throughout the course of therapy we will review how we’re doing as well as our session arrangements.
What can I expect in the initial assessment?
The first session(s) will provide you the opportunity to discuss your difficulties and areas of concern ask questions and find out more information about the way we can work together. During this time you would have the space to think about what brought you to therapy, your goals and hopes and develop an initial impression as to how therapy may be helpful for you. Attending an initial assessment session places you under no obligation to attend any further sessions.
