It would be good to meet you and discuss how your problems are affecting you and how I can help. Most of my clients say they start to feel better after just a single session and around 95% feel they have made significant progress after six.
The gym is for a healthy body - therapy is for a healthy mind.

Reflect - In the first session I would like to get to know you and identify the symptoms you are experiencing, the emotions and the events that trigger them and the root cause by exploring your core beliefs.
Recover - This is not a quick fix approach. To achieve personal change requires lifestyle changes and sustained effort and commitment from you. We will work together to meet your goals of therapy and an action plan for maintenance of your improved mood.
Refocus - One of the biggest benefits of CBT is that after your course has finished, you can continue to apply the ‘tools for life’ you have learned. This should make it less likely that your symptoms will return.
My first session
I can appreciate how difficult it can be to engage in counselling for the first time or with a new counsellor. I recommend that we arrange an initial session to identify and explore the issues and concerns you may be experiencing, and your hopes for how counselling may help you. The initial meeting is very relaxed and just for you to have space to explore your thoughts. There is no obligation to continue further sessions at that point. You may decide you feel comfortable and would like to return at another time in the future or it may be a one off session, your choice. I know from experience that when you reach out for help, it is a strength, not a weakness. I am here to help you work through any challenges you may be facing.
