What to expect?
We would first have a brief phone consultation to understand more about your concerns and discuss what is going to be most useful for you and your family. This usually lasts 15-20 minutes and is free of charge.
If we decide to proceed we would have an assessment appointment where we would discuss in more detail what your concerns are and what you would like to be different. This usually lasts for 50-80 minutes.
Following the assessment I would recommend an intervention plan with a suggested number of sessions and we would come up with some goals to work towards. The formulation (understanding of the problem) will determine the intervention (what we will do). A range of psychological models influence my clinical practice but ultimately we will decide together which approach will fit best.
