How long do I have to come for?

After an initial consultation session lasting 50 minutes you may have a better idea of whether you would like to continue with the work. This will also allow me to assess whether I feel I can help you. If we agree to continue I will suggest an initial contract of six sessions to explore the issues you want to work with and which will also give us time to build a strong respectful therapeutic relationship. Thereafter we can agree an open-ended or a more time limited contract with regular reviews of how we are progressing along the way. 

I’m not sure what I want to come for. Is it still ok to come? 

It is perfectly ok for you to come and explore things. I often have clients who either are unsure why they have come or have so many reasons that they cannot pin down any one issue. Part of our work would then be to explore and clarify what the issues are and discus how we might work with them. Alternatively we might decide that counselling was not appropriate at this time.
