what you can expect
First, we create a safe space for you to talk. Then in a conversational manner we:
- Undertake an initial assessment answering the following questions; What brings you here? What do you hope to have happen? What do you think is currently holding you back?
- Explore influencing factors.
- Work together to create an overview of what is happening, making links, identifying strategies and beliefs that might be hindering your momentum.
- Facilitate a therapeutic conversation to deepen your awareness and help you to discover insights about your issue, to rewire your brain and to promote your well-being.
We then build on this work session by session, reviewing progress and ensuring the process meets your needs.
