The first appointment is an opportunity for us to get to know each other. I believe it is important that you feel as comfortable as possible with me before making a decision about whether you would like to work with me. I will also need to have a sense of what you are looking for, so that I can be sure that I am the right person to help.
If you choose to continue then we will usually meet at the same regular time each week. Counselling is offered as open-ended, which means that it can be long or short term according to your needs.
