The most important part of counselling is for the client to feel safe and comfortable with their chosen counsellor. This is why I offer all potential clients an introductory session which is a chance to meet with me and see if I am going to be the right person to support you.
During the first session, I will explain about confidentiality and invite you to talk about what has prompted you to seek counselling. If you know what you would like to achieve from the sessions we can discuss that, but it is fine if you don’t have any specific goals.
At the end of the introductory session, we will discuss the best next steps for you. This may be starting regular counselling or it might be that you want some time to think things through.
Introductory sessions last 50 mins and cost the same as a regular session. There is no obligation for you to return after an introductory session.
