GETTING STARTED WITH THERAPY
To get started with therapy simply send me an email outlining what is you'd like therapy for. I will respond to arrange an introductory session. The introductory session is a chance for you to experience therapy with me - it is also a chance for me to take an assessment to see how best we'd work together. If the introductory session goes well we can move forward into scheduling regular appointments.
