What to expect
I offer an initial telephone conversation (30 mins) for us to explore what you wish to work on in our sessions together. This also gives us both the opportunity to connect and feel that this is a partnership that will work. This session also gives you an opportunity to experience (if you haven’t already) what it is like talking with a counsellor.
At this session we will agree a plan for our working together whether in person, on the telephone or virtually. Initially, we will agree a set number of sessions, usually 6 (excluding the initial session). We will discuss fees and days/times of sessions. We will agree the details of our first session together. I will ask you to reflect on what you might wish to gain from the work (if you aren't sure or don't know).
Usually sessions are weekly or fortnightly and are 50 minutes duration. I will talk through with you the boundaries of the work and confidentiality. We will agree the details of our next session together.
When you have decided that you wish to leave counselling, we will agree to have an ending session to review our work together and to say our good-byes.
