Free Initial call to discuss the suitability of psychotherapy for the specific situation. This is a chance to discuss the type of work that could be required and whether there would be a good fit between client and therapist. If the client is a teenager this is a great way for a parent to discuss with the therapist (without their child present) if this is something they would be interested in for their child.
If it is a parent who has had the first initial call and the child/adolescent is unsure about therapy or what is involved I provide a 15 minute video call to discuss the type of work I do and to put them at ease before the appointment and for them to be a part of the decision making process in finding a therapist they can relate to.
The first appointment is between 1 and 1.5hrs. This appointment is a combination of information gathering, talk therapy, psychoeducation and a psychotherapeutic modality. The appointment will end with a strategy in place for the upcoming sessions and can often have a huge impact in a very short time. Clients often say after this meeting that they did not realize that this type of therapy existed or was available to them.
The duration of therapy is very client dependent. Depending on the client some therapies last 8 weeks, others it is a more continued relationship. We recommend at least 5 sessions to start. In the first appointment we will decide together what the frequency will be. Ideally more sessions at the beginning, sometimes twice or three times a week then reducing to less frequency. The goal is to make your therapist redundant.
