What to expect
When we start working together, our first session will be an initial consultation where we will get to know each other and I will enquire about what brings you to therapy as well as explore your presenting issues.
I will assess your specific needs and you will have the chance to ask questions to decide whether you would like to start therapy with me.
The first session, in fact, is an important moment to answer any questions or doubts you may have about the process. It is also an opportunity for you to understand if you feel comfortable in opening up with me; and for me to asses if I can help you.
I will explain how I work and we will discuss the options available to you, from long-term therapy to short-term counselling. You will leave the room with a clear idea of what you can expect from our work together.
I offer a bespoke approach both in English and Italian.
Duration and frequency of sessions
I usually see my clients once a week for 50 minutes. I am flexible and can accommodate my clients’ needs; depending on your schedule we may want to meet more or less frequently than this (if clinically appropriate), or you may sometimes want to come for longer sessions.
The type, frequency and duration of your treatment will be discussed at the initial consultation and will be revisited in due course.
I also offer online sessions. This is something that we would also discuss during our initial consultation.
I tend to meet my clients at the same day and time every week – it’s very important to attend therapy with regularity in order to get results; protecting some space in your diary makes this easier to achieve.
While it is important to try and attend regular weekly sessions, I understand that may be times when this is not possible and I am happy to be flexible and work around these times with you.
