What To Expect
Getting to know each other
There is no obligation to proceed following this meeting. You may wish to go away and think about things for a while. If I believe I can help you and you wish to work together, we will arrange a regular weekly appointment which will last 50 minutes, at the same time, on the same day – because this format is proven effective.
Our meetings are solution-focussed. You will learn tools for life and develop skills to take control of your thinking and stop giving so much control to others. By applying what you learn in our meetings you will increase your effectiveness to help yourself.
Length of therapy
• How long you’ve had the difficulties
• The severity of your situation
• Your effort during and between meetings in learning and practicing your new skills.
At the beginning of each meeting we will assess your progress.
Some people come with a very specific concern that can be addressed in just a few sessions, whereas others come with more long term, deeply-rooted issues. I work on an open-ended basis which means that together, we will regularly look at how you are progressing and agree when you feel ready to bring your counselling / therapy to an end.
