“Increasing clients’ awareness is key because with awareness comes choice.” – Williams and Menendez
GETTING STARTED IN THERAPY/COACHING SESSION AND WHAT HAPPENS?
Effective coaching and therapy rely on the importance of the truth because both parties know that this is when real learning occurs. In the craziness of life, truth is the only way that issues can be sorted. Therapist/coach are partners and co-creators with clients to help them achieve a positive outcome.
Usually the first few sessions with a therapist, counsellor or coach will focus on obtaining a detailed and clear picture of what the concerns/issues are: severity, frequency, impact, relevant family history, life assessment in significant areas of their life. A course of action is explored between counsellor/coach and client(s). Consultation usually lasts 50 minutes with a further 5 minutes to do the administrative work of accounts/appointments etc. Longer appointments are charged proportionately.
Cancellation fees may apply.
Should the parties be agreeable and therapy/coaching is to continue then a “Disclosure Statement” and a formal contract are negotiated, signed and initiated.
