Before starting counselling we’d meet for an introductory session to decide whether we’d like to work with each other.
In advance of the introductory session I will ask you to complete some straightforward forms that seek information about you and what brings you to counselling. That helps both of us prepare for the session. The information you provide is confidential. I keep it securely and will destroy it when I no longer need it.
All counselling sessions, including the introductory session, last 50 minutes. Sessions are not structured. Within each session we will explore whatever you wish to raise, while being mindful of your goals for counselling. Our work will flow from what you bring to the session.
Each therapy is as unique as the relationship created by the client and counsellor. Some people take longer than others to feel comfortable in counselling. I will not rush you.
