What to expect.....
Following an initial enquiry, we will arrange an assessment session for you at my Counselling space in Nottingham, where we will discuss your counselling needs. During this session we will work together to cover any questions you may have, and ascertain your short and long term goals. This is also a time for you to decide whether therapy is for you, and as such, you are under no obligation to continue. If you feel that you would like to proceed, we will arrange a mutually convenient regular appointment, usually 50 minutes per week.
The aim of Person Centred Therapy, is not to offer advice, but to facilitate you gaining a better understanding of your unique perception of personal difficulties and the world around you. Our time together will be very much led by you, working at your own pace, to ensure that you feel safe and are able to manage what you bring to each session.
The work will be on a one to one basis, with confidentiality and the building of a trusting relationship being at the forefront. The aim is to promote your autonomy, self esteem and confidence and support you in taking positive steps towards better understanding of your world and enjoying a brighter future.
