What to expect 

The first session is an opportunity to talk about the challenges that have bought you to therapy, and involves getting to know a little bit about you and your life experience, in order to put your challenges into context. It also gives you the opportunity to see whether I am someone you’d like to work with. By the end of the session, hopefully we’ll have an understanding of your difficulties and be able to identify specific therapy goals that you would like support with.

In the first few sessions I will make suggestions about how to approach your specific challenges, and the time frame that may take. Sometimes difficulties can be resolved within 2-3 sessions, other times more extensive therapy is necessary and can extend to 10 or more sessions. This can be discussed and revised as we go along, taking into account your needs and preferences.

 

I may ask you at times to reflect on things in between sessions, or practice new skills in order to more effectively make changes outside the therapy session.
