How often do I need to come ?

Sometimes if we are nearly ready for change just one or two sessions can instill in us the confidence in deciding  how to make a change and to work out a plan to actuate the change using strategies that we have explored in counselling. 

Most people see me weekly but than can graduate to fortnightly or monthly meetings as your insight, motivation and resilience increases. 


For those in crisis I can usally see more than once a week, if required. 

Do you liase / collaborate with GPs, Psychiatrists ? 

Yes but only with your written permission.
