Sessions last fifty minutes and are usually held weekly, at a convenient time for both parties.
Some people find that just a few sessions are all they need, other people value therapeutic support over a sustained period of time. The therapy will be regularly reviewed as we go along.
After your initial contact (by phone or E mail), we agree to meet for a first assessment session. I find it is generally easier to make this arrangement over the phone. The initial session is an opportunity for you to tell me more about yourself and your current difficulties, and to check if you feel comfortable with me. It is also a chance for me to check that I am able to offer you the help that you need.
If at the end of this we are both happy to proceed we can arrange further sessions, or you can take time to think about things further. You are under no obligation to continue.
However, if at this point I do not think I have the skills needed to help you, then I will talk with you about other possible options.
It is important to find a counsellor you feel at ease and safe with.
