I will visit you in your home, contact you on line or on the telephone, at an agreed time. Each session, including the initial consultaton, will last for 50 minutes. During the initial consultation, I will carry out a number of tasks. These include explaining the basic principles of the therapy(s), gaining an insight into some of your thoughts and feelings, making an initial assessment, encourage a comfortable and positive working relationship, recommend a course of treatment and set out clearly defined, agreed upon and compatible goals.
Specific therapeutic objectives are met as we work together as a team. You may feel empowered by having an active role in the therapy process. This is likely to discourage any over dependence that may occur in other therapeutic relationships.
I may set homework and self-help exercises for you to carry out in-between sessions. Examples include completing goals set in the therapy session, making a note of uncomfortable feelings and relaxation techniques. This encourages a rapid and continual improvement which become a part of everyday life.
