How I work
For those willing to engage in therapy the aim of an initial consultation, is to understand what brought you to seek help, reach a formulation and think about what would be helpful at this time.
The First Consultation - what to expect
I am an experienced assessor and clinician and have the training to understand a wide range of difficulties.
The initial consultation serves as a space to think about what will suit you and usually takes place over two sessions. My training and experience mean we can think about what goes on under the surface as well as above. I can advise and guide if this therapy will be suitable or make another recommendation if it could be more beneficial at this time.
