I'll offer to schedule a short phone conversation during which we will discuss:
- the general suitability of my work
- the process of an assessment and subsequent sessions
Often times it is also very useful for someone to hear my voice and to build a first impression.
At the end of our call I'll offer to follow with an email summarising what we have discussed and also attach an Assessment Information Sheet.
This document contains information on assessments, sessions, confidentiality, billing, cancellation policies and therapeutic contracts.
After the call and follow up email, most people take some time to reflect and either come back to me with more questions or to schedule an assessment. Some people will also choose not to continue the process.
