Pain can be the process to your purpose!LightInTheDark
If you decide that this is the path you wish to take, what will happen first is that I will respond to your initial contact with a telephone assessment. This is simply to get an idea of what it is you are looking for from therapy. If you wish to go ahead, I will then arrange your first appointment with you.
The first session would involve briefly going over what was discussed at your telephone assessment, and what it is you are hoping to achieve from working together. We will then agree on a contract which will outline practicalities and establish a working agreement that is mutually beneficial to us both. This will include matters such as confidentiality, how to contact one another outside of sessions if necessary, payment, and so on.
Once these housekeeping matters have been addressed, it’s over to you. This is your time and space, and you are in control! We will move at a pace that is comfortable for you. There are no expectations of you; this is a safe place free from judgement.
