What happens in the first session?
Together, we will work collaboratively to identify your concerns and help you decide whether you want to work on one particular subject, which might be creating current problem, such as relationship difficulties or work stress. In that instance, short term counselling might be appropriate. If we decide to work together, we’ll agree a regular time and day to meet, once a week, usually for 6-12 sessions.
However, if you find yourself in a position where a problem keeps arising and doesn’t seem to go away, perhaps you find yourself feeling anxious and unable to cope, then it would be helpful to invest more time in therapy and the option would be long term counselling, attending a session once a week for a longer period.
You might find yourself needing more time to work through an issue and explore the underlying reasons for the distress, particularly if you are feeling more anxious, in which case coming more than once a week might be beneficial.
