Before treatment begins, you will be offered an initial assessment, during which we will clarify your current therapeutic needs and answer any questions or concerns. We will also discuss the goals you wish to achieve and how we can work together to achieve them. Following the assessment, which can take one to two sessions, you will be given a treatment contract, which will include an indication of the number of sessions required and the type of treatment to be offered. Typically, 8-12 therapy sessions are recommended followed by a review to ascertain progress. Appointments usually occur on a weekly basis initially, before gradually reducing in frequency as treatment goals are achieved.
Once treatment is complete, we like to ensure you continue to make progress and are available for booster sessions if required. You will also have the opportunity to provide feedback to us via a standard feedback questionnaire.
