Making an Appointment

Making an Appointment 

Making an appointment is easy!

Either telephone or text the number on my contacts page, or alternatively send me an email and we can arrange a mutually suitable day and appointment time.  I cannot always answer my phone immediately as I may be working with clients.  If that is the case, then please leave a message along with your name and contact details and I will return your call.

Initial Assessment & Consultation

This is a very informal appointment and I offer the initial assessment and  consultation free of charge with no obligation.  Please allow 45 minutes for this appointment.

During our first meeting a detailed personal history is taken.  Goals or objectives can be discussed and I will explain the client contract with you and make sure that you understand its content.  This time also gives my clients an opportunity to ask any questions regarding the counselling process and determine how they feel about proceeding with therapy.

If for whatever reason I feel that my clinical skills or experience will not match a clients needs, I will endeavour to ‘sign-post’ them towards useful contacts, a professional colleague or appropriate agency.
