Yes you can. I offer prospective clients an introductory fifty minute session. This gives us both the opportunity to consider whether we wish to work together. It is just as important that you feel comfortable with your therapist as it is that your therapist feels able to work with you.
If we decide to work together we will agree on a time frame, which can be short term, long term or open ended. Whatever time frame we agree on we will regularly review how things are going.
If we decide not to work together I am usually able to provide details of alternative therapists or agencies.
