The Initial Appointment
The Initial Appointment is an important opportunity for you to meet and discuss your reasons for counselling, and what you would like to get out of the counselling process.
Paula will explain how she works and what you can expect from working with her. Then you can decide if you would like to work together.
Research shows that you are more likely to have a positive outcome at the end of your therapy journey if you have a good therapeutic relationship with your therapist.
This is why Paula encourages potential clients to visit more than one therapist before deciding who they would like to work with.
It is important that you find the ‘right fit’. Sources link
Therapy sessions are on a weekly basis and continue on a weekly basis until we mutually agree to end therapy or decide that fortnightly (maintenance sessions) are more beneficial.
Sessions are paid for at the time of booking and are paid for in advance.
