The First/Introductory Appointment
The first session is an introductory session, where I will get a sense of what is going on for you and what has brought you to counselling and you will get a sense of how I work and the type of counsellor I am.
It is very important that you take a day or two after this session to decide if you want to begin counselling. There will be no obligation on you in this initial session, to make a second appointment.
I mainly work in an integrative way using Gestalt, Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural methods of counselling.
Training and Qualifications.
I received my core training in Counselling and Psychotherapeutic practices at PCI College Dublin, Ireland.
I am a accredited member of the IACP (Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
I am dedicated to continuous professional development in the interests of providing the best therapeutic experience for my clients.
I am qualified in Gestalt Therapy with the Dublin Gestalt Centre.
Appointments are by prior arrangement only.
Counselling fees are paid at the end of each session.
Fees per Session: 70 euros.
If you are training to become a therapist there is probably a Personal Counselling requirement as part of your qualification.
I would be delighted to meet with you to discuss the possibility of us working together during your training.
You can get a sense of how I work from this initial session and make your decision from there.
I understand all too well the expense involved in training to become a therapist and will endeavor to come to a financial arrangement which feels fair to us both.
Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble.
