How do I get started?If you're ready to jump straight in, book your initial appointment. If you would like to have a chat first to see if we are a good fit, you can book a complimentary initial 15 minute consult. We will have a general conversation about your goals with counselling and how I might be able to support you. From there, if you would like to proceed, we can book your initial appointment. Following your booking, you will be sent an initial consent/intake form to gather some of your key personal details prior to your first session. Then it's time to attend your session. We allow longer for the first session to give you plenty of space to share what's going on for you and what your goals are from counselling. We gather some background information in this first session also. Counselling can be a little confronting for some for the first time, however many also find it a very supportive space where they get to talk about themselves and what is going on for them in a non-judgemental, non-biased space. For many, it can be the first time they have been truly heard and listened to. I offer a deeply nurturing, respectful and holding space where you can just be you - and discuss anything that is there for you to discuss. If at any point you do not wish to continue with the therapy - there is no obligation to stay. You may leave at any time and discontinue sessions.
How long do the sessions go for?We allow 75 minutes for your initial session. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes in length.
