Once you have made contact with me by email or phone, we can arrange one or more consultations which may help you decide and clarify whether you feel ready to engage in psychological work at this point. It also is an opportunity to discuss the nature of the therapeutic work that we may undertake together and what it might entail. I will ask you questions to help me understand in some detail what brings you to therapy and what you are looking for. It is also a good time for you to ask any questions that matter to you.
We will also think and talk about options for treatment (e.g.individual, group), lengths and frequency of sessions, fees and other necessary practical aspects.
