It is a time for clients to be truly heard and for them to experience themselves as they are, without fear of rejection or judgement.

Primarily the first appointment is focused on understanding what is happening for you, some history taking and determining how we can be of assistance. The total number of sessions required can be negotiated after this initial session. Generally it is around six however sometimes if the issue is more complex a longer time frame may be needed and this can be re-negotiated. Some client’s choose to stay in counselling for years attending fortnightly or monthly sessions and see it as their safe place to be supported, heard and accepted in order to gain continuing clarity in themselves and their lives.
