& what to expect
Heres a little section on what to expect! Alongside a little more information on the therapeutic process!
Firstly, if you are thinking about attending counselling, but you're not too sure - thats totally fine! Before booking in a one to one session with me in person, we can arrange a 15 minute free consultation over the phone, where we discuss any questions you may have, talk through reasons you are interesting in undergoing therapy and any hopes and goals.
After your free 15 minute phone consultation, we can book in a one to one counselling session, in the practice itself, this is if you are happy to go ahead!
when attending your first session, we can get to know each other a little and you can get yourself comfortable in the therapy space.
In our first session, we will go through a contract, which will be a clear discussion on our therapeutic process - and any general information you will need to know before we begin our therapeutic sessions together.
I may ask you questions as to why you wanted to attend therapy, what your hopes and goals are, what you may want to use the sessions for - which will allow me to understand and gain an insight.
Once all the above is complete, our sessions can begin - I am always happy to answer any questions, discuss anything you may be unsure about or in general take the sessions at a pace where you feel comfortable and happy.
Sessions take place weekly, at the same time, location and day - however I am happy to assist on a change of times and days if this isn't possible.
I am aware that some clients may want a set number of therapy sessions due to wanting to sort out their finances beforehand & plan in advance (may already know what they would like to focus on in sessions)
This can be arranged and booked in advance if preferable.
Whereas other clients book their sessions weekly.
