Most people can feel a little apprehensive about seeing a psychotherapist. In the initial consultation you will have a chance to come and air your anxieties and thoughts and to ask any questions you may have and to decide if psychotherapy is appropriate for you.
Psychotherapy involves a series of stages and development and is a process. It is important you feel safe and comfortable enough.
