Congratulations - your journey has begun! Thank you for reaching out and asking for help. This is such important work and I am very pleased to be able to work with you and support you every step of the way. Starting a process like this is perhaps one of the most challenging steps on the journey. So well done! It may feel daunting, exciting and nerve-wracking. However, long before we take that first step to change our life, the idea has been with us for months, sometimes years and we have been laying the foundation within. We want change and need relief from places where we get stuck again and again and again. Often it is a crisis that brings us to action. Other times we become so fed up with the perpetual cycle of negative emotions that we literally can't stand ourselves anymore. Other times we are drawn to therapy out of a desire to create more empowerment in our life. Whatever has led you here, welcome and I am looking forward to accompanying you on your journey.
For your first visit all you need to do is bring yourself and get connected to the internet or phone. I will send you an invite to a secure, user-friendly online site where we will meet and a form to complete and return to me before we meet. The Client Questionnaire is the first section of the form where you can share about what you are up against in your life and clarify your hopes for our work together. The second part is called the Informed Consent and goes through in detail the policies and procedures of the services offered. Read this and sign it and let me know if you have any questions about any of it.
During your first appointment we shall have a chance to review these forms. We will also have ample time to explore the challenges you are up against, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and get a good idea of what our work together will look like. I will provide you with some things to think about before we meet again.
I look forward to meeting you and am 100% committed to supporting your growth and healing. Let the work begin!
