What happens when you get in touch 

  • I'll contact you and we will have a brief phone chat to discuss what brings you to therapy. We'll then arrange an assessment session in person or via Zoom.

  • During this session, I'll ask for some key information from you and we will have a chat about what brings you to therapy. We'll go through the therapy contract and you will take away a copy to read.

  • The following week we'll speak again (online/telephone) in order to address any outstanding queries and decide if we want to work together.
    If we decide to go ahead we will sign the therapy contract and arrange an initial six sessions. I will take advance payment for the following session.

  • If we decide not to work together, I'll signpost you to other sources of help as appropriate.​​

Ending therapy

It is common for us both to develop a sense of when our work is done. This is something that we track via periodic reviews. Ending therapy is often a process in itself. For both long and short term work, it's beneficial to factor this in and allow time to work through what comes up. Because of this, I encourage my clients to make a proper end, typically 1-3 sessions.​
