Counselling as a process can be rather intense, and starting it can be very daunting. You might have many questions and doubts about how to begin and whether counselling is the right way forward for you.
During the 20 minute consultation you can ask me any such questions you might have. We can talk about what your current struggles and challenges are, what you are looking for through counselling and how I can be of help during this process. This consultation will also allow you to get a better understanding of who I am and we can explore how we will work together. We can determine the approach that might best suit you.
Along with being in tune with your counsellor, it is crucial that you find yourself in a safe, non-judgemental and a comfortable environment. It becomes difficult to determine all this online or over the phone. Therefore a face-to-face meeting is absolutely necessary and can provide you with the opportunity to make an informed choice, without the expense.
A good therapeutic relationship between your counsellor and you is the key factor for this process to head in a positive direction. This consultation will help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
Lastly, I would also like to meet with you in order to establish a rapport prior to beginning counseling you.
My ultimate aim is to make sure that our sessions together are as valuable to you as possible.
