What to Expect - our first meeting
I will aim to explain as clearly as possible the services that I can offer and my various approaches I use in therapy, answering any questions you may have.
I will clarify the professional, confidential nature of the counsellor/Coach-client relationship and explain any limitations around confidentiality.
Together we will complete an assessment involving me asking your some questions such as: your reason(s) for seeking counselling? What is your current situation and personal history? What symptoms are you experiencing? This enables us both to explore whether counselling or therapeutic coaching is right for you and whether you would like to meet with me again as it is very important you find the right therapist for you.
Together we will discuss and sign an agreement for our work together should you wish to proceed with counselling.
