Psychotherapist Consultation

The counselling session takes 50 minutes at an agreed day and time each week.  The duration of counselling sessions can vary for each individual, where sessions can range from a number of weeks or months to longer term therapy.   At all times the individual has the right to end their therapy however, ideally this is discussed in advance of the ending to ensure the counselling relationship comes to a successful finish for both parties.

The first session explores the motiviation and needs which have brought the individual to therapy along with discussing any goals or expectations from the therapeutic relationship.  The therapist will also explain the counselling process to include the agreement of a fixed time and day for each seesion. The fees, confidentiality and the cancellation policy are also discussed during this session.
