Empower yourself, make an appointment. (make this text stand out)
To make an appointment simply contact me on 083 853 2459 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Appointments are available from 8.00am until 9pm Monday to Friday, with limited Saturday availability.
It can take a few sessions for you to get comfortable working with a therapist and for me to fully understand your situation. That is why I offer the option of a 30 minute free consultation session before starting therapy and agree to work together for 6 – 8 weeks initially. After that we can review how we are getting along and discuss whether to proceed or end the therapy depending on your needs.
THE FIRST SESSION The first session is different to the ones that follow due to the introductions and formalities. I will have already spoken with you to arrange the appointment and to get an idea of what is bringing you to therapy.
When you come for therapy for the first time, remind yourself that you are the expert of your own life! I am not there to judge you. I will explain my terms such as the cancellation policy and confidentiality. You can also ask me any questions you might have.
If you don’t feel comfortable with the first therapist you see, try someone else!
If you haven’t been to the therapy centre before make sure you know where it is and give yourself an extra 5 minutes. I will send you an information sheet beforehand with the location and details of the therapy centre.
By the end of this first meeting you will have an idea of how the process works, you should feel heard and together we will have an idea of what to work on in the following sessions.
Therapy is an experience unlike any other in this world. It can feel overwhelming, exposing and a little scary but is very powerful. Most people who try psychotherapy appreciate the benefits and the chance to explore self-awareness and the possibility new ways of thinking and being.
