How Often Do I See Clients?

.

My recommendation is to initially see clients on a weekly basis to build the therapeutic foundation and support. This can be mutually discussed and agreed, and you may wish to continue weekly, fortnightly or even monthly sessions. This will take into consideration your therapy needs, personal choices, and financial considerations.

We can work short term (up to 4-6 sessions), medium term (2 to 6 months) or even long term.  In most cases, we would work open ended, which allows flexibility towards a mutually agreed closure.  Clients may also choose to take periodic breaks, as and when needed, to reflect on the session work that they have completed so far.

I work flexibly with clients, especially those who have work commitments, single parents, carers, those with family responsibilities, or clients with clinical conditions that can affect their daily routines.

 

Booking Initial Session

.
Step 1:
Initial communication can be made directly with me via this website, email, text, phone, or through a Counselling Directory referral.

Step 2:
I will contact you to arrange a consultation session (date & time) to discuss the nature of what brings you to seek therapy.

Step 3:
Our initial consultation gives us a chance to professionally get to know each other, as well as to discuss your expectations and needs regarding therapy.  We will assess ways of potentially working together.

We will also discuss terms and conditions of confidentiality, your health and wellbeing, network support, mutual responsibilities, attendance and cancellation procedures, session availability and fees, as well as address your questions and answers about the therapy process.

All initial arrangements will be mutually agreed between the Client and Therapist to begin our work together.

Step 4:
The first therapy session is scheduled within a mutually agreed timeframe at the end of the consultation session.
