The assessment is about getting to know you but it is also the beginning of your engagement in the process and with that is somewhat different from a straightforward counselling session.
The assessment will take place in two halves each lasting roughly two hours. In the first half I will get to know you, your history and what you are hoping to gain from the process. After this we will take a break for one week or two depending on your needs. During this time, you will do some homework. And we will also have a brief phone chat to see how you are doing.
For the second half we will discuss what you have worked on and reflect on what you have done so far. After the second half I will come back to you with a treatment plan and we can arrange our future sessions either face to face, telephone or skype.
If you have had a telephone chat in the thirty days before the assessment the cost of the chat will be deducted from assessment fee.
The assessment will take place at my office in Dover, but I do also offer a home visit service for assessments. If you would like a home visit please use the book a chat page. Home visits can be arranged to areas including Canterbury, Ashford, Folkestone, Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Rochester but please email me if you would like to check a specific availability. After this future sessions can be done via skype or phone.
