What to expect

What can I expect at a first session?

  • A first session is a chance to talk about what brings you to therapy at this time and to try out what it feels like for us to work together. There is no pressure for you to continue if it doesn’t feel right for you. 

How often should we meet?

  • I work with people on a weekly basis. Having a regular appointment on the same day and time each week provides a safe, reliable space that you know will always be there for you.

Do I need to prepare or bring anything?

  • You don’t need to bring anything with you. Sometimes people like to think about things they want to explore ahead of time, whilst for others it can feel more helpful to explore what emerges on the day. There’s no right or wrong way to go about it.​

What will we do in sessions?

  • We’ll be led by what’s important for you at the time. There are lots of ways to explore issues, ranging from talking to using more creative ways to deepen our understanding such as breathing techniques, increasing body awareness and using the arts. We can work together to find what feels most helpful to you.  

How many sessions will I need?

  • It’s up to you how long we work together, and what you choose to focus on. Some people just want a handful of sessions to help them make an important decision, while others prefer to stay longer and explore wider issues. Endings are an important part of the work and help to bed in changes, so it is important to build in time for this. 


How do I start?

  • You can contact me using the form on the Contacts and fees page, or leave a message on 07754 686305 and I’ll get back to you. Sometimes it’s helpful to have a preliminary telephone call to answer any questions you have and there is no charge for this, nor any obligation to work together after it.
