The initial appointment
Contact me, say whether you wish to meet in London or Surrey and we will set up an initial 50-minute appointment. This initial appointment gives you the opportunity to meet me face to face. and experience working with me.
At this initial appointment you will experience working with me for the first time. and we will consider what has brought you to counselling and what you want to achieve. At the end of the session, I'll answer any questions and we will discuss the length of therapy, fees and payment options. There is no obligation to continue, and you may wish to go away and consider before committing to a course of therapy.
Usually, however, at this point we will agree to work together, and set up a schedule of weekly appointments. I ask for a commitment to an initial six sessions enable us to get into our work. From then on we continue to work on a weekly basis on an open-ended schedule.
When you decide to work with me, I will give you my terms and conditions which will form the basis of our work together. I will ask you to sign and return a copy at our first session.
