The Process

What is the first step?
Decide whether you would like to do face-to-face sessions or online sessions.
Choose a day and time you can commit to on a regular basis. Therapy is about consistency. Therapy needs to take place on the same day and time every week. It usually takes a week to process the session.

Contact me to arrange an assessment session. The assessment session is an opportunity to explore your reasons for seeking therapy. It gives me an opportunity to explore your history and also to establish whether we are a good fit to work together. The most effective therapy is based on the therapeutic relationship so it is important to identify whether we are a good fit to work together.
The assessment session is usually 60 minutes. Sessions thereafter are 50 minutes.


FAQ. Image_MindWhat happens next?
Upon arrival at Treat Balham you will be required to complete a questionnaire with your general contact details. The assessment session is an opportunity for us to explore your reasons why you are seeking counselling and to identify whether you want to continue with therapy. If in agreement, we will agree a suitable date and time and this will occur at the same time on a weekly basis. During the assessment there will be a discussion around my fees and the agreed fee will be required as payment at the end of each session.

What is the contract?
Once we are in agreement to work together you will be required to sign a contract. This is everything that was discussed in the assessment session in terms of date, time and cost as well as my cancellation policy. When we have both signed this document a copy will be returned to you, for your reference.
