I will start by taking a note of your presenting issues and asking you to fill in an assessment questionnaire, I may explore information I have received about you, such as a letter from your GP or Employee Assistance Programme. Then I will ask you to ‘tell your story’ and I will listen without judgement.
I am an integrative therapist, which puts you at the heart of our therapeutic journey.
Confidentiality and note taking
I will explain how I will protect your confidentiality and privacy. I will also tell you of any situations when I may be required to disclose information about you, for instance if you are at risk to yourself or others. I am required by law to break confidentiality if you are involved in any of the following:
During the first session, or at any time during your therapy, you can ask me anything you want to know about my qualifications and experience. You can also ask me about your therapy and question anything you don't understand. I will do my upmost to help you.
