The process of beginning therapy can be filled with hope and possibility for change, but it can be daunting, especially if you are unsure of what to expect. Sessions provide an opportunity for you to explore and discover more about yourself, your patterns, and what is troubling you.
Our first session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to get a sense of how it feels to work with me. We will look together at what is happening for you, how it is affecting different areas of your life, and what you might like to be different.
This initial meeting is also a time for us both to decide if we wish to work together, with no obligation to commit to anything further for the time being. If you feel that I am the right therapist for you, and we agree we can work together, we will contract for an agreed number of sessions, or to work in an open-ended way.
If you prefer, we can begin with a brief introductory telephone consultation. I will ask a little about what you are looking for from therapy and you can ask me any questions or concerns you may have. From there, you can take some time to think about it or we can schedule your first session.
Please contact me to schedule your telephone appointment.
“The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday.”
Whether we meet face-to-face or online is a personal preference. Face-to-face meetings take place in a private space that is calm, comfortable and welcoming. You can bring a drink with you, or I offer bottled water before we begin. We will talk through the difficulties you might be experiencing and how you would like things to change. You might not fully know what it is you are looking for and our sessions are a place to begin where you are, and we can take it from there. I will listen to you and your story and support you to find a way forward. I’m not going to judge you, criticise you or try to ‘fix’ you.
Sessions are available Monday to Friday from 10 am to 7 pm (my last session is 6 pm.)
Counselling works best with weekly sessions for consistency, and with a commitment to our work together.
