Reasons you may consider coming to therapy as:

​​​

  • You would like a private and confidential space to talk to a trained professional

What happens in the first session?

I welcome you to a safe and non-judgemental space where you can share in confidence. In the first session we will explore your current issues, enquire about background history and establish the focus of therapy. This will provide an opportunity for us to meet and decide how we can work together.

The first session is an important part of the therapeutic process. It lasts for 1 hour and during this time I will ask questions about you and your life.  This helps us to think about how we can work together and if I am the right therapist for you. It is an opportunity for you to discuss what you may be seeking from therapy.

At the end of the session we may agree together for the counselling/therapy to start and make the next appointment, or I can refer you to another therapist more suitable if I am not able to take you as a client. 

If we agree to continue, we will decide on the duration of the therapy and look at the terms.

There is no obligation to continue after this session.

Online Therapy

It may seem that with Online Therapy you only need to set time aside for the session, but it may be worth setting aside a little more time. I have noted and several clients who have moved from face to face counselling have told me, that they would use the travel time to my therapy room to think about what they would like to bring to the session and review what's been going on for them, then at the end of the session they would use the time it takes to travel back to process the session and think about how they might like to use what they have learned. 

With Online Therapy it can be beneficial to give yourself time before your session and after your session for the same reasons. Give yourself the time you need before returning back to work or other activities, especially during this time where more people are working from home remotely.
