I am interested, what happens next?


People seeking help can make contact directly themselves, or be referred by their GP or other concerned professional


I offer an initial appointment, within a week, where possible. This is an introductory meeting, lasting about one hour, and provides an opportunity to explore current difficulties and concerns.


If we both feel that we can usefully work together, an initial contract will be agreed. This usually involves attending for a one hour appointment on a weekly basis for a few weeks (See FAQ’s for more information about this). Further counselling / psychotherapy is negotiated / reviewed on an ongoing basis as required.


However, it may be the case that some other form of help would be appropriate,  or perhaps a different style of counselling/therapy; this too can be explored in an initial session. Clients may choose not to continue after the introductory session, which is fine.
