WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY SESSION?
would coming to see me for Therapy help you? I am an experienced
anxiety specialist and have worked with people who have suffered from
moderate anxiety to those with agoraphobia and self harming.
job is to help you to identify the cause and effect of your anxiety
(it is not always what you think it is). We will then work to change
your thought process from negative (stressed) thinking to a positive
(resourceful) thinking to enable you to move forward. I will also
teach you skills to use in any stressful situations in the future.
you come to see me I will initially offer you a Complementary
Consultation. This is an opportunity for you to make sure that
you would feel comfortable working with me, and you can ask any
questions you may have about the skills I can offer you. This also
gives me the opportunity to decide if I feel that I would be the best
Therapist for you, that I would be happy to work with you, and to
check that you have not been coerced into attending by a third party.
You are then free to go away and have a think about it before
booking your sessions with me. There is no hard sell, although most
people will book their first session at this time.
this, and at your first booked therapy session, I will take you
through a number of questions in order that I can get to know you
better. I am then able to personalise the work that we do together
in order that you get the most benefit from the time we have
together. I may also carry out a brief relaxation session with you
if time permits. You will be offered a complementary MP3 for Self
Hypnosis Relaxation which can be sent to you via email. I may also
set you some homework to carry out before the next time we meet in
order to start you on your journey to a more resourceful future.
Don't worry you will not have to write an essay it is often something
like listening to the MP3 each evening and learning how to take that
first step to change your mindset to relaxation not anxiety.
concerns are not based on how bad I think things are for you, that
would be my judgement and I may be very wrong. What I am
concerned with is how it affects you and what you can do to
alleviate it and live a happier life. I will then find the tools and
resources necessary to move you forward to a happier today and a more
sessions following this will be reviewing how you have been since we
last met, reviewing the homework and how it has helped and then we
will continue with the therapeutic change work. This will vary from
person to person and although I prepare for your visit in advance and
have a plan this will change if necessary to deal with whatever is
most useful for you at the time. We will then decide on when your
next session should be.
