An initial consultation gives you the opportunity to meet with Cathy and talk through the issues or problems that you wish to deal with. Cathy can then discuss with you the approaches that she uses and how they might be useful to you.
This initial consultation gives both you and Cathy an opportunity to decide whether you will both feel comfortable working with one another and discuss any queries or concerns you may have, particularly about the process of counselling and psychotherapy.
During this session Cathy will also go through the terms and conditions with you e.g. times, arriving late, fees, holidays and cancellations.
