Counselling Services near Richmond
What to expect from counselling sessions?
The sessions involve us meeting, talking and listening together with the mutual purpose of paying careful attention to your concerns and gaining a greater understanding of your own particular situation. It is a shared process and the therapeutic relationship can only be nurtured in a safe and dependable environment.
We work carefully and respectfully, honouring your privacy, autonomy and independence and your freedom and ability to make choices for yourself. Within the therapeutic relationship you can explore your physical and emotional feelings, your thoughts and behaviours and the contexts in which they arise.
The perspective we bring to the work is based upon our clinical experience, knowledge of theoretical approaches and experience of our sessions.
It is never possible to know how long it will take to work through an issue, at the initial session we will suggest six sessions at which time, if you are finding the sessions helpful, you can continue.
