~ What to expect from the first counselling session and finding the right counsellor ~

You have arrived, did you drive? How easy was it to park? The directions you had, were they easy to follow? You walked, was it easy to find? How long did it take you? You travelled by public transport, what were the transport links like?  Were they good? Were they reliable? How did you feel when you met the counsellor? The counsellors consultancy room, how did you feel when you walked in, did you feel comfortable and at ease? Some counsellors work from their own homes how do you feel about working with a counsellor in their home?


Listen to your “initial gut  feel” during your initial consultation.  Do you feel that you are going to be able to work with the counsellor? Do you feel comfortable in their consultancy room? Do bear in mind that trust in the counselling relationship can take some weeks to develop.  We at Finding You Bishops Stortford East Herts offer a free initial consultation (one to one counselling only).  We have good public transport links and ample Parking is available. (go to our contact page for further information on how to find us) 


During your initial consultation with us our aim is to give you a feel of how we work which in turn gives you the opportunity to decide if the way in which we work, will work for you.  We will tell you a little bit about us, go through our confidentiality policy, our supervision policy, we will deal with practical matters and go through our terms and conditions.  If you would like to proceed we will take down some contact details for you and book you in for your next appointment.
