Free First Meeting
I appreciate that for some people this can be the hardest part,. Discussing your most personal worries and concerns with someone who is effectively a stranger to you can be a big barrier to starting therapy and preventing you from getting the help you need. For this reason I offer a free 30min complimentary first meeting so that you can ask any questions that you may have to help you towards that first step.
If at this meeting you decide that you would like us to work together and that you are happy to move forwards an Initial Assessment will be booked for you. Whilst your reasons for seeking therapy will be discussed informally at this meeting it does not replace the need for you to have an Initial Assessment where a full history is taken.
Simply state that you would like to book a ‘Free First Meeting’ when contacting me by using the contact form on this website.
Prior to therapy taking place there will be an Initial Assessment where a full history is taken and the issue or problem to be addressed is discussed.
At the end of the assessment I will advise you of the proposed plan for your therapy and you will have an opportunity to discuss and give consideration to the proposal. The decision on the length of therapy will be made at Initial assessment, the length of therapy varies as this can be brief, short-term or longer term open-ended. I will work very closely with you in establishing a programme which suites your goals, needs and availability. Sessions are 50 minutes in length and take place weekly, at the same time,place and day, agreed They are regular and frequent so as to give as much continuity and support as possible
