I offer prospective clients an initial assessment session. This provides us with an opportunity to consider whether we proceed with regular CBT sessions. It is just as important that you feel comfortable with your therapist as it is he or she feels able to work with you. At the end of the first session, we would arrange to meet for an approximate agreed number of sessions. There is no obligation to attend all the sessions arranged and you are free to terminate your appointments at any time. A review session takes place at the end of the agreed number of sessions where we jointly assess progress and what further action, if any, may be needed. If we decide not to work together I try to provide you with details of alternative practitioners or agencies. Sessions generally last for 60 minutes and if you are late arriving we will still need to finish at the same time so as not to delay the next client.
