Initial Counselling Assessment Session (Free)
A free initial counselling assessment session is available, which gives an opportunity for both parties to assess whether or not we are compatible and can work together effectively.
I would like to hear a bit about yourself, where you are from, your reasons for seeking counselling, and what expectations and outcomes you wish to gain from counselling. Let me know if you have any previous experience of counselling and, if so, when this occurred and what this experience was like for you. I’ll be interested to see what personal insights you have in relation to your present difficulties and how you think they maybe worked through in counselling.
I will introduce myself and briefly give you some information about where I’m from, my preferred style of counselling, and my professional experience of counselling. This will allow you to get a sense of me and my approach to working together in relation to my counselling style.
Near the conclusion of the initial session, we will collaboratively provide an honest assessment, to each other, as to whether we consider we are suited to working together. If not, I will refer and suggest another counsellor for you to see or suggest other courses of action you may need to take.
If we agree to work together, then at the end of this initial counselling assessment session we will negotiate the terms of a counselling contract, whereby aspects on the number of sessions, charge per session, cancellation policy, confidentiality, and other matters will be agreed upon and signed-off.
