In the initial session a preliminary assessment will be carried out which Is mainly gathering of information, it is also an opportunity to explore your reasons for coming to counselling and for you to ask any questions you may have.
I will advise you on the number of visits I think you will need in order to make progress with the situations and issues we'll be working through.
Counselling usually takes place weekly on a regular day.
After the initial assessment it is common to have a further 3 sessions - Totalling 4 visits.
At the 4th visit we will do an Evaluation to decide on the next steps:
A further 4 sessions
