What will happen at my initial consultation?

You may have been thinking of therapy for a long time and the thought of starting therapy can be daunting.  The first session gives you the opportunity to see whether you feel comfortable with my approach and whether we would work well together.   I would normally explain my approach to therapy and do my best to answer any questions you may have. I will also ask some questions about you, what brings you to therapy and what your initial worries are.  When the session has ended and if you feel comfortable we can agree to work together, or you may decide to think things over in your own time before committing to another session.
