Bridge Over River

Getting started

You may be feeling nervous about your first counselling session.  ​

Before our first counselling session, I offer a free 20 minute Zoom or phone conversation. This is for you to ask any questions you have and for us both to get a sense of whether I might be the right counsellor for you. I will have sent you a copy of my counselling agreement at this point. This contains information about the counselling I offer as well as practical details.  Please feel free to ask any questions you have about this. 

Our first counselling session will be an opportunity for you to tell me about yourself and the concerns that you are facing at the moment. We will then look at how you would like to use your counselling sessions and what change might look like for you. 

After this initial session, I will ask if you would like to book a session for the following week. You will always be able to choose whether you want to keep going with counselling. I don't specify that you need to commit to a minimum number of sessions.
