Taking the step to come to counselling for the first time or with a new counsellor can sometimes be daunting. I will endeavour to make your first session as easy and comfortable as possible. You will receive a warm welcome. We will take some time to settle in and talk about why you have come to counselling and what you would like to get out of it. I will answer any questions or fears you may have. I will discuss how I may work with you and we will discuss our contract. This is a general agreement which sets out basic information including fees, cancelation policy, confidentiality, ethical guidelines and availability. At the end of this session we will explore If we are happy to proceed. Deciding to continue to work together is a mutual decision and if we are both happy to continue, a suitable time is determined for future sessions. Naturally, if you would like more time to decide whether or not to proceed in therapy with me that is ok too.
