My first session
Initial sessions involve assessment of your current difficulties and brief exploration of what you want to achieve from therapy. I explain the therapeutic process and what to expect in our upcoming sessions while respecting and prioritising what you want to achieve. I see therapy as an investment in the process of change and a way to work through difficulties but also an opportunity to learn more about yourself. My aim is to provide a safe, caring and understanding place where issues can be worked through at the client's pace yet achieve the results and goals they have in mind at the end.
