The assessment session costs £15 for individuals and £20 for couples, lasts an hour and is an opportunity to meet one another and see if we could work together. I will ask you why you have sought counselling at this time and find out a little bit about your situation. I will take you through my professional contract covering things such as confidentiality and fees. You will have the chance to ask me questions about my experience and how I work.
If I do not think I have the expertise for your situation I will be honest and encourage you to seek someone more suitable. If you decide you would not like to work with me you are under no obligation to make a further appointment.
If all goes well and you would like to continue we book in some further dates and times. It’s as simple as that. The hardest part is making the first contact.
