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 we promise we're just normal people). 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 your therapists's counselling approach
3) A chance to ask any questions you might have about your therapist or about counselling in general
4) A conversation about your counselling goals and current coping strategies
However, it only takes a few minutes and we are happy to provide you with the forms at your session.
