the first session: what to expect
Whether you're a counselling newbie or an old pro, the first session with a new counsellor can feel overwhelming. (But I promise I'm just a normal person). Here is an idea of what to expect in a consultation or first full session.
1) Brief paperwork consisting of contact information and a service agreement
2) An explanation of my counselling approach
3) A chance to ask any questions you might have about me or about counselling in general
4) A conversation about your counselling goals and current coping strategies
However, it only takes a few minutes and I'm happy to provide you with the forms at your session.
