No issue is too small or too great to bring to counselling. It is common to feel apprehensive about seeing a therapist or to worry about what will happen. My style is warm, approachable and sensitive and there is no right thing for you to say or do. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss matter and any questions you may have.
I suggest all new people attend an initial consultation, it is important that you feel safe and comfortable. Sessions are generally once a week at the same time and last for 50 minutes. You can end the arrangement at any time, although usually we will discuss this together.
