Treatment Outline

Initial Consultation

The first step is to meet for an initial consultation or assessment session. This normally lasts for approximately an hour.  This session allows me to gain a greater understanding of your difficulties and to discuss the most effective course of therapy for you, how it would work, what you could expect, and what it would involve on your part. You can ask questions about any aspect of therapy.  This session is also an opportunity for you to get some idea of how it might feel working together.  You may know you would like to continue by the end of this session, in which case we can book some further sessions.  An initial consultation does not obligate you to continue.

Therapy Sessions

Therapy sessions are normally 50 minutes in duration.   It is often helpful to come for five or six sessions and then review.  This gives sufficient time to see how the process is working for you. The total number and frequency of sessions can vary depending on the nature of the issues you bring and what you would like to get out of the sessions.  In general, specific and recent issues can often be addressed in a focused way with short-term therapy (less than 12 sessions), whereas more sessions may be needed for longer term, recurrent, or complex issues.  The sessions may be weekly or fortnightly.
