I always speak personally to new clients before they start therapy or coaching. Not all therapists do this, but I believe it is essential that every potential client has a good understanding of what to expect from their time with me. This is the reason I do not use online booking agencies. I want to be sure that my customer knows what they are buying, that their expectations are realistic, and that I am the right person to help them achieve those expectations.
In some cases, a telephone chat is all that is needed to answer any questions and to explain how the process is likely to work. Typically people looking for coaching, or to remove a habit or a phobia would fall into this category. These are problems that are normally dealt with in a single session.
If treatment is likely to be longer, the potential client really deserves a face to face meeting to explain exactly into what they are investing their time, money and emotions. This is why I offer a free introductory consultation to persons interested in therapy for anxiety conditions, panic attacks, depression and weight loss. It gives you a chance to meet me and decide if you are comfortable working with me. It gives me a chance to explain the process, what it might feel like, and to answer any questions regarding it.
So if you wish to talk to me, just pick up the phone....
