HOW DO I KNOW YOU ARE THE RIGHT COUNSELLOR FOR ME?
I offer an inital free 30 minute consultation on the telephone which will give you an opportunity to discuss what you are wanting from counselling and ask any questions before deciding if you want to make an appointment for us to meet.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE FIRST SESSION?
The first session is an opportunity for us to meet, for me to get an idea of what has brought you to counselling and for you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you. By the end of the first session I will be able to tell you if I can support you in getting what you want.
If we decide to proceed then we will arrange a weekly appointment, each session will last for 55 minutes.
If we decide not to proceed I can offer you a list of other practitioners or organisations who may be able to help you.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
I work with people on both a long term and short term basis. Short term counselling is usually around 6 to 12 sessions. Longer term work can be for 1 to 2 years. Once we have had the initial session I will be able to give you a an indication of how many sessions you might need.
