What to expect
I offer clients an initial telephone call to discuss their needs and availability followed by an initial session.
The first appointment is an opportunity to learn more about the nature of the problem, to establish whether I am the best person to help and if we are the 'right fit'. You should come away feeling clear about an agreed plan of action which we can review at regular intervals to make adjustments in case goals and focus may change as the work progresses.
How long does it take?
Therapy can be just a few sessions and, sometimes, even one session may be enough. It may continue over several weeks or months. This depends on your individual situation, wanted outcome and will be discussed on your first appointment.
How long is a session & how often will I see my therapist?
Sessions will usually last fifty minutes to one hour. This can be adapted to your needs and should be discussed during the first appointment. Many people see their therapist once a week, but the frequency can vary according to your needs.
Fees are discussed prior to the first appointment and are available upon enquiry ; some concessions are made depending on your circumstances. If for any reasons I am unable to help, I will do my best to recommend a suitable colleague or other helpful organizations.
