Our first counselling session is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other. It will be a space for you to ask any questions you may have about me or the counselling process and to talk about what brings you to counselling. At the end of this session we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions, although you may want to think it over for a few days.
Once the decision is made to continue we will establish a ‘contract’ that we both feel comfortable with. This will make clear the confidential nature of the sessions, the cancellation policy and establish our commitment to working together in regular weekly sessions. For example we may initially contract to meet for 6 weeks, to see how that works out. This may be a sufficient number of sessions or you may then decide to continue open-endedly.
In all cases the sessions are best conducted on a consistent weekly basis to gain the most out of the work together. I have a 48 hour cancellation policy although I will always try and be flexible and offer an alternative time and day If I can. If the session is cancelled within this time the full session fee will be liable.
