What Happens at Our First Session?

I understand that most people are apprehensive about attended a first session or starting a piece of work together.   At your consultation session I will collect some personal details, we will start to discuss what brings you to therapy, your therapeutic needs and any goals you may have.  

Consultation session(s) offer the opportunity to identify if we are a good fit to work together and also gives you the chance to ask any questions.   If we are both comfortable continuing to work together, we can discuss and agree proposed number and frequency of sessions.   

After a gap in working together, returning client’s require a new consultation session(s) to discuss current circumstances, familiarise me with their “story”, along with agreeing new therapeutic aims and timescales.   

Why Client’s Attend Sessions

Therapy goals are broad and wide, below are some potential benefits of therapy;

  • Positive changes / mindset
  • Greater insight and understanding about yourself and others
  • Reduce the symptoms associated with distressing experiences
  • Be listened to, understood and not judged
  • Reduce or eliminate fears or habits
  • Grow in confidence, self esteem, calmness, positive mind-set and beliefs
  • Move forward from feelings of being “stuck”
  • Increase positive thoughts and encourage healthy behaviours and habits
  • Improve relationships
  • Alleviate anxiety and low mood
  • Reflection and self care
