How do I find out if you are the right therapist for me?

Posted on 14 September, 2018 at 13:25
I guess you may have checked me out on my Counselling Directory page or found me through Google search and looked at my website? I also have my CV and comments from colleagues who know me well on LinkedIn.

Often clients say to me I looked at your profile picture on your website and watched your video and I liked how you looked and talked.

I realise to get in touch with me is a big step, find out what you can about me. There are plenty of therapists out there. If you get a gut feeling to proceed the next step is to get in touch with me.

I do like to have a chat on the phone so give me a ring , leave a voicemail message if I am not answering as I maybe away from the phone. Or I often get a text with a contact number so we can set up a quick telephone call.

Once we set up a telephone call this is an opportunity to ask me questions such as:

What days/hours do you work?
Do you have any spaces just now?
How might you work with me with this issue?
How much does a session cost?
How will I know if therapy is working for me?
Friends and family suggested I contacted a counsellor but I'm not sure, what do you think?

I will then try and answer the questions and ask some of my own:
Why are you seeking counselling now?
What's happened to you?
What would you like to work on first?
How do you see the issue?
Have you had counselling before and how was that for you?
What would you like to feel when counselling finishes?
Are you OK to work weekly?

I do say to potential clients "let's meet for a no obligation first session and see how we get on", this gives us both to see if we get on and if clients feel "I get them".
We then set up the first session and take it from there.

If you would like a quick chat to see if therapy is right for you and if I am the right therapist for you then phone of text me on 07824700980.
