Leeds Psychotherapy

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation and subsequent sessions last 50 minutes

This is an ideal opportunity to meet and for you to talk about what you are experiencing and what you wish to be different.

During this time I will enquire about your current situation and, if appropriate, offer some insights into what may be happening at an unconscious level.

For therapy to be successful it is essential that you would be able to develop trust in me so the quality of our working relationship is very important. I hope you will be assessing this during this initial consultation.

I am really ok if you decide I am not the right therapist for you as your well-being and development are the priority for me even if you decide not to take this journey with me.

However if you wish to proceed we can arrange with a few further sessions where you can “test the water with me.”

After this agreed period we can discuss your experience of therapy and if you are finding the sessions useful we can move into an open ended process where we meet weekly for as long as you are still benefitting from the process.

If you would like to arrange an initial consultation please call me on 07941 488851 and we can discuss what you need and how I may be of help.
