Stacey Jones, BEd, MA Counselling, MBACP
The first session
When you contact me about counselling, we will chat briefly on the phone to arrange an initial, free consultation at a time suitable for you. It is very important that counselling feels relaxed and comfortable for both the client and the counsellor, and at the first meeting, you can decide, under no obligation, if you feel that we are able to work together. You can expect me to explain the counselling process, what it is and what it is not, and the parameters in which counsellors work. I will spend some time listening empathically to your story during that first appointment, and perhaps to ask some questions to get a bigger picture of your situation. I do not write notes during the session but spend my time fully engaged in your story. The session will last for 50 minutes. If you have found the first meeting helpful, and wish to continue, we will find a time suitable for the next meeting.
How I work
I am an integrated practitioner who will take the time to listen to your story and then may incorporate a range of practises to help you along the path to wholeness and self-acceptance. These might include some CBT exercises, some mindfulness and meditation, some creative methods or Gestalt therapy, depending on your needs at the time.
