Things You May Need To Know

What should I expect from my initial meeting?

Your first meeting will last for 50 minutes and it will give us both an opportunity to see how counselling might be useful for you. It will also give both of us the opportunity to find out if we feel comfortable working with each other. In some cases a second meeting may be necessary to further assess whether I can meet your needs and provide the right treatment for you.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?
This depends on the particular issues that you want to address. I am able to work time-limited, open ended or long-term. I would generally suggest that we contract initially for four or six sessions and then review the work to consider whether you wish to continue.

How Often should I Attend?
We will agree to meet on a weekly basis, usually on the same day and time of each week. Sessions will last for 50 minutes.

How Do I Arrange An Initial Meeting?
Please call my mobile, land line number or Email me giving your name and contact number or Email address and a suitable time for me to call to arrange a date for an initial meeting.

Do I Have To Use The Arts?
You do not have to use the arts, although I may invite you to do so from time to time. The choice will always be yours. However, if you do take the plunge you may find that working with the arts can provide new insights and discoveries and can give a different dimension to the therapeutic process if you remain open to it. You do not have to have any aptitude for the arts or have any experience in using them.
