Your Wellbeing Assessment
A counselling assessment is a chance for you to find out about ‘what is counselling?’ and how it may be of benefit to you. We can talk about the issues which are troubling you which will help us offer you the most appropriate support which could be counselling or advice.
The assessment usually takes around 45 minutes and is generally undertaken on a 1-2-1 basis. However, if in this initially assessment you would prefer someone to come in with you, this can be arranged though this practice is not appropriate during formal counselling sessions.
Once we have your details we will contact you to arrange an assessment at the place and time best suited to you.
What Happens Next?
Once you have completed your counselling assessment, your details will be put on the counselling waiting list. You will be contacted as soon as a counsellor becomes available and we will then organise your first session. Your counsellor will then arrange the following sessions with you.
During the first counselling session, your counsellor will discuss a verbal contract which is a spoken agreement in how you will work together which will include confidentiality. You will also be informed of your rights and responsibilities as a client, to enable you to feel safe and valued
