Whether considering your first experience of therapy or looking for a new therapist, the journey to therapy and what therapy can do for you may seem unknown, scary, or full of hope – maybe it is all of these things. Sometimes the biggest hurdles are making the initial contact and having the initial appointment.
In essence client and therapist build a safe and trusting relationship through a regular weekly meeting (same time, same day each week) which allows the client to explore whatever he or she wants to. Having this can be a lifeline in some instances and it can give you the necessary space to reflect, engage and process parts of your experience that are crying out for help and attention.
My clinical experience in counselling has been in primary care for the Low Cost Therapy Service attached to the Minster Centre and also in a central London private practice.
