How it works
Starting counselling can feel sensitive, it is a decision which is often reached delicately. For this reason, a counselling assessment within the first session can be a way of introducing yourself to the therapeutic process and will assist me to assess of your circumstances.
Assessment goals include:
The assessment is carried out in the same setting as future counselling sessions and the space is an empathic, safe and non-judgemental environment where confidentiality is respected.
If, at the end of the session, we make the decision to work together a mutually agreed day and time is arranged for future sessions. These will be arranged for the same day and time each week, unless otherwise agreed. The consistency of the sessions and the commitment for towards self-development and growth is pivotal, and the reason why weekly therapy sessions is the usual agreed way to work.
