What to expect in counselling sessions

What Should I expect in counselling sessions?

It's normal to feel nervous or anxious before your first counselling session. There is nothing you need to do or prepare beforehand.

The initial counselling session is an opportunity for you to outline what has brought you to counselling and ask any questions that you might have.

It will be an opportunity for me to get to know you and your story and maybe what you would like to work towards in future sessions.

There will be a small amount of paperwork to complete which will include our working agreement, confidentiality, and privacy policy.

We will also establish whether I am the right counsellor to work effectively with your particular issue(s) and, if not, I can signpost you to another counsellor who has the appropriate specialism to match your needs.

Counselling sessions take place in my counselling room within the Little Chalfont doctors surgery. I have a quiet and private room with a discreet side entrance.

The sessions last for 50 minutes. I offer short term and longer-term therapy as well as online Zoom sessions.
