How to book a session and what happens in the initial session?

Please contact me to arrange an appointment for our initial consultation and/or if you have any questions. Our initial consultation will not be a counselling session, although you may find it therapeutic. The aim is to gain an understanding of your experience and expectations. I will ask a selection of questions. We will also explore whether we would like to work together and ascertain whether I am the right therapist for you. It is important that you feel you can trust me and that you would be comfortable talking with me about very personal thoughts and feelings. It is also an opportunity for you to clarify any issues you are still not sure of.

You can find further helpful information about counselling and psychotherapy, or about choosing a therapy or therapist, on the BACP Register where you can download information leaflets.

Where will we meet?

Your counselling sessions will take place on the same day and at the same time, usually every week, at The Gestalt Centre.

Psychological reports and diagnosis?

I am not qualified to diagnose mental health or other health issues and do not prescribe drugs. I do not provide psychological reports or complete any applications.

Social media?

Please note I do not engage with any client or former client on social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, blog comments, etc.) and will therefore ignore any requests for "friendship", business contacts, direct or @replies, blog responses or requests for a blog response within social media sites, to preserve the integrity of our therapeutic relationship and protect confidentiality. However, the internet makes this sometimes difficult, so please raise any issues that may occur in relation to social media interaction in our sessions.
