I understand that making the decision to book an initial session can be a big step. It may help you to phone me or you may prefer to send me an email. Making contact and subsequently meeting will help you to decide whether I might be the right person to work with you.
So I see the initial assessment session as a chance for us to meet and for you to share what has brought you to this point in your life. During this session you can get a sense of what it would be like to work with me and we can explore together whether I can offer what you are looking for in a counsellor or psychotherapist. In addition you may wish to express any expectations you may have of counselling or therapy.
There is no obligation to make any further commitment at the end of this initial session. You may wish to book another session or take time to reflect on your decision.
My standard fee is £50 for a 50 minute session. I allow an hour for the initial session for which I still charge £50.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email. I will endeavour to respond within one working day.
