What happends at my initial 30 min session?


Firstly we need to understand your reasons for seeking therapy, we will discuss your expectations and any concerns you may have as well as discuss your desired outcomes and goals. The initial session is designed to provide you with details about the therapy process, provide you with information to help you to make an informed choice and to see if it is suitable to continue and would want to proceed


How long will it take?


Individuals all have their unique strategies when dealing with their issues, as such therapy needs to be tailored to each client, this includes format and length. Some people find that within only a few sessions they have achieved their goals, for others it may take much longer. It is widely accepted that an average of six sessions is necessary to see first results. This is due to the fact that it often takes time to understand the problem, build a therapeutic relationship, and to achieve change. However, unnecessary sessions are never encouraged and you can be assured that the minimal amount of sessions will be used. This is achieved through regular reviews to check that the process is working for you and to discuss progress. Client empowerment underpins practice and it will always be your choice whether or not you wish to continue.
