The initial consultation usually lasts between 1 - 1.5 hour long. The main purpose of the interview is to find out whether we are suited to work with each other, as therapy is ultimately successful only if two people connect and are committed to forming a working relationship. I will also need to find out more information about what you would like to get out of therapy and you will likely want to find out how I work. We will also discuss whether you need short-term or long-term counselling/psychotherapy.
Confidentiality and trust is an important aspect of therapy. Any thoughts, feelings and information you share with me, as well as your personal data, is strictly confidential.
Cost of sessions: I have a sliding scale depending on income. A reduced rate may apply to low income earners and students. We can discuss this either on the phone or in the initial interview.
Length of sessions: Each session is 50 minutes on a weekly basis.
