First meeting…

When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for… In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.   – Carl Rogers

The quality of the therapeutic relationship is central to successful therapy so it’s important to find a counsellor you’re at ease with.

The initial session provides an opportunity for us to explore your situation and how we might work together.  If we decide to proceed, then I provide a standard agreement that sets out the time, length and regularity of sessions, cost, notice of cancellation and information about confidentiality and codes of practice.
