Essential contact details are initially checked by phone. This also gives you opportunity to briefly describe your presenting issue, unless you have already stated this in your first contact. I can assess whether or not, the issue you want to address, is something I feel qualified to take forward. If not, then I can help you with referral to a different colleague or organisation. This ensures the best quality of service. Contract details are also discussed, the decision to take up therapy, at this stage, is purely your choice then a mutually agreed date & time can be arranged for an initial face-to-face (Telephone/Skype) session.
