I reserve a full session for our first meeting so up to an hour is the usual for counselling or coaching.
Everybody's experience of counselling or coaching or clinical supervision is unique to them however the first session does follow a kind of process:
I will explain what I do to help keep your information private and confidentiality
You will be able to begin to tell me a little bit about yourself and what it is that is going on for you
We will be able to talk about your hopes - what you ideally want to get out of our sessions and conversations
If you have had counselling, coaching or clinical supervision before, you will be able to tell me what was helpful
You can also ask me any questions that you might have
As I say, your sessions will be unique to you so this session is very helpful in working out how we go forward from here.
If you would like to make an appointment for our first session, or if you have any questions, please contact me.
