Your first session:
Your first session will be about your reasons for therapy, what you want to achieve from therapy and agreeing how to work with your therapist. Working together includes discussing how often you will meet, time of the meeting, fees, cancellations, ethics of practice and so on. A written agreement between you and the counsellor acts as a reference for therapy sessions.
Counselling sessions are typically 50 minutes, except for the first session. All information is confidential. The sessions generally follow a pattern of introduction, information gathering, discussion, conclusion and 'homework' or goal-oriented tasks.

WE WORK TOGETHER
I love good coffee, pastries, cheese and bread. I’m a café chaser!
I appreciate art, enjoy sewing and support SBS/ABC. I enjoy commenting on posts about ageing as a way to educate and challenge narratives. I try to remain curious about my world because it’s a good way to expand knowledge and grow!
