Initial appointment Counselling
The initial session, as well being an opportunity to begin talking about what is troubling you, is also an opportunity to meet each other and to see if Kristy is the right therapist for you.
Kristy will take notes and ask questions, to get an idea of how best she can help you. Similarly, Kristy will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
If you decide to work with Kristy, it would be agreed for how long initally. It may be for a fixed number of sessions or it may be decided to be more open-ended. Sessions would then be at a regular time and place once a week.
The Initial session generally lasts 75minutes.
In follow-up sessions Kristy will help you to explore your issues and concerns, help you to recognise personal patterns of behaviour and possible roadblocks.
Follow up session can be can be challenging as well as rewarding as you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
You may be asked to conduct some personal tasks or homework between sessions to give greater understanding.
Follow up sessions generally last 60 minutes.
Our goal is to provide quality health care in a timely manner. As such, we have had to implement an appointment cancellation policy. This policy enables us to better utilise available appointments for our patients in need of our services. Please be courteous and notify us by phone or email if you are unable to attend an appointment at least 24hours prior to your scheduled appointment. We will then be able to allocate this time to someone on our waiting list. Please note that if you miss an appointment consultation fee will be charged.
