It is really important to find out what you want from therapy and how you feel about working with a therapist. I offer a free half hour session and invite you to come and explore this. If you do not want to proceed then I may be able to help you by referring you on to another service or providing you with further information.
During the initial session I will talk with you about what you may want and need from therapy and sometimes this can be quite difficult to work out. It may be useful to book a few exploration sessions to investigate in more depth what you need.
All therapy sessions usually runs for 50 minutes, leaving the conventional ‘five minutes’ at the beginning and end of the hour to enable you to arrive and have a drink and then leave with time to check the calendar for your next appointment. During your first 50 minute appointment we will usually identify specific goals and areas of development that you want to achieve during your therapy. The therapy will be directed by you.
All therapy I provide is confidential. There are some situations, however, when I will not guarantee this. If I consider you are in danger of hurting yourself or someone else I will break confidentiality. However, this is discussed and agreed between us at intake.
If you need to cancel please give 48 hours notice otherwise you will be charged for the session.
