I offer an initial 20 minute phone call without charge. This gives you the opportunity to say a little about what brings you to counselling now and what you hope to get from it, as well as to ask any questions you may have. The counselling relationship is a crucial part of successful therapy, so it’s important for you to see whether you feel you could comfortably work with me.
If, after that initial call, we decide to work together, I will send you a welcome pack and ask you to complete some paperwork prior to our first session.
During our first session, we will discuss in more detail your hopes and concerns, and we will agree an initial number of sessions. Counselling may last for a few weeks or for over a year. We will frequently review how you feel we are progressing towards what you hoped for.
