What Can I Expect at our Initial Session?
After your initial enquiry our first consultation session will give us both a chance to meet up and get a sense of whether we are able to work together. Once I have asked you some background questions around your presenting issues, you will have a chance to ask me any questions or areas of concern surrounding our future sessions together.
What Happens after the Initial Session?
We can agree to meet on a weekly basis for an initial block of six individual or couple 50 min sessions with a view to ongoing sessions thereafter.
For those who have a busy schedule the days/times of these sessions are flexible. After the six weeks we can evaluate your current needs and agree to an extended time period thereafer.
