About me and my therapy practice

I am passionate about providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to help you overcome problems, learn new skills and make lasting changes. This is to help you to find relief and achieve your aspirations.
My usual practice is to offer potential clients a free 30-minute confidential consultation call with you. This is an informal and confidential telephone or video-call consultation.
It is to give you a sense of me and how I work, as well as to ask any questions if you'd like to. It also gives me a sense of you and what you'd like help with.
Once complete, we'd then discuss together whether you'd like to begin sessions and would book an initial assessment appointment,
My first session
As mentioned above, following the free consultation call, and assuming you feel my therapy service is a right fit for you, we would then arrange a first appointment
This first session, attended by the client and I, is called the initial assessment and usually lasts for 50 minutes. Here, I carry out my legal and ethical obligation to you to gather all the important details about what's been happening for you and what you want for yourself, including a simple risk assessment, and making sure you have all the pertinent information to assist you to make an informed decision about whether you'd like to start therapy. You are also invited to ask questions if you'd like to.
This is a paid session, and most of my clients pay their own therapy fees; however, some are covered by private health insurance or by their employers.
Following this, we would then press on with your weekly therapy sessions.
