What to expect in your first Counselling Session
'The therapeutic space is a safe cocoon for the remarkable
process of transformation.'
Your first counselling session will be an opportunity for us to meet each other. I will listen to you, understand what is going on for you, and explore with you how I can best help you. I will answer your questions and we can decide together how best to continue.
I tend to suggest that we have six counselling sessions to begin with, and then have a review to see how we are doing.
Weekly counselling sessions tend to work well for people, but we can explore less or more frequent session if that is more suitable, or that the frequency of session may change during the therapeutic process.
It's normal to feel anxious when you first attend counselling or psychotherapy. My aim is to help you to feel confident and at ease.
The therapeutic space is a safe and confidential space for you to be yourself.
An Ethical Practice
I work to the ethical standards and guidelines of the
National Counselling Society (NCS) of which I am an accredited member.
Having an ethical counselling practice includes working with a clinical supervisor who is there to support my practice. She will know of my clients only on first name basis.
I have an inclusive practice and welcome and value people from all walks of life, class, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexuality, gender, age and religious beliefs.
I work in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
