I have never had counselling before. What's the first step?
Make a no-obligation appointment via telephone, face-time or Skype for 15 minutes. At this appointment, you will have an informal assessment and get to know how I work.
What if I have to cancel the session?
As with most appointments, you will need to give 24 hours' notice to cancel a session - otherwise, you will be charged in full for the session.
I feel that 1 or 2 sessions would be enough. Is that okay?
Some people only need one or few sessions, and that is totally fine. In that situation, I use a brief solution-focused therapy approach using goal-setting and planning. This is good, for example, for preparing for an event or work-related situation.
I am scared of acupuncture because of the needles
The needles are not like syringe needles. Acupuncture needles are fine - almost like your hair - hence it's not what you imagine. You may feel nothing or a minor sensation that will immediately end, leaving you with a feeling of calm and relaxation. You might even fall asleep.
