My first session
Starting counselling can feel daunting if you haven't experienced it before. In your first session, we will talk through how things will work and find out more about you, including why you feel that you need counselling at this time and also what you hope to achieve from your therapy.
Counselling will put no pressure on you and you have control over what you wish to talk about. I will work with you at your pace.
