The first appointment is an opportunity for you to discuss your concerns in a confidential space and discover how we can help you tackle them effectively.
Why struggle any longer, take the First Step to Make your Life Better
The First Session
Your therapist/coach will listen to your concerns and explore what a good coaching and/or therapy outcome would be, for you. We will give you an understanding of how we can work with you, to help you address the issues which concern you. You will get a sense of our working style and have the opportunity to ask any questions. If we think we think our service isn’t appropriate for you, we will be pleased to recommend alternative sources of help.
How Many sessions will I Need?
Because each individual is unique and circumstances are often different, we never tie you to a set number of sessions that you must attend. We work with you session by session and as you progress, you decide when you have had the number of sessions that works best for you.
Some people like to know how many sessions they might need or some people want to work within a set time frame and book a set number of sessions. Your therapist can give you an idea of what can be achieved, within different time frames and work within those with you.
Here are some common session time frames clients find helpful:
Some people find one meeting may be enough to clarify or find a solution to a problem.
3 to 6 Sessions
To gain understanding of a specific problem and develop some strategies to deal with it, 3-6 sessions can be enough for some people.
6 to 12 Sessions
To develop a range of solutions and address your problems with the benefit of ongoing support and guidance, while you experiment, practice and embed the changes into your daily life, 6-12 sessions can be helpful.
12 or More Sessions
If the problem is longstanding or there are several problems which need tackling, 12 or 24 sessions or more may be more appropriate. Because we work flexibly you can change what you want at any time.
You can use therapy to address a particular issue, then go away and test out its effectiveness. Once they see the evidence of how the therapy/coaching has improved their lives, some clients who have more issues to deal with, like to come back for some more sessions to tackle another aspect of life that they would like to improve.
Open Ended Sessions
You may want to develop a stronger sense of self and explore a number of difficulties and/or you may just prefer the idea of open ended sessions. This way, you can end sessions when you feel ready.
A Standard Therapy/Coaching Session lasts 50 minutes – you can do a one off, weekly, fortnightly, twice weekly or ad hoc depending on what works best for you.
Double Sessions are available and last 1 hour and 50 minutes. Some people really like these, when they want to cover a number of areas and get more done in a shorter space of time.
Our approach is to empower you with the tools you need to be able to deal with the challenges you face. We can help you understand problems from a new perspective and help you discover ways of managing situations better. We provide education, understanding and proactive tools which you can utilize to implement positive change. You can learn more about the way we work with clients, by clicking here
