My first session

For some people beginning therapy can be both exciting and stressful while others may feel calm and relaxed. Individual reactions differ though everything discussed is treated in confidence.

The first appointment begins with me saying a few words about my service - confidentiality, for example.

The remainder of our time is then given over to considering what brings you to therapy.

During our appointment a fuller picture will emerge and you may also become aware of other things that were not previously on your mind.

By the end of our first appointment you will have a better sense of what therapy will involve and how therapy can support you.

Therapy begins with your first appointment. Why not contact me today to book your first session.
