People can turn to psychotherapy or
counselling in order to deal with a challenge or difficulty. Some find
it a valuable opportunity to explore their inner landscape and how this
relates to the world around them.
The quality of the relationship between you and your therapist or
counsellor is central to working together successfully. So it's
important to choose a person who feels right for you.
We would therefore have a first meeting to
see if working together feels comfortable. It offers us both a chance
to see how it feels and for any questions to be raised. It's also an
opportunity for you to consider what you want from therapy.
If we decide to continue we would
work out how to go forward together and would commit to a block of
sessions with regular reviews. Sessions are usually weekly and tend to
be for an hour.
