The Fit Between the Patient and the Therapist

During the period of consultation, I will speak directly with you about my understanding of the issue your are seeking assistance for and how I can be of help given my method of working and experience. If I feel I am not well suited to assist you I will provide you with a referral to someone who can.

In addition, your comfort with me is a crucial factor. The initial meetings are rarely free from anxiety and therefore a certain level of unease can be expected. However, it is also important to keep in mind that while most clinicians are very well trained, who we are as people affects how we work. It is important that you are able to let me (or any therapist you're working with) know how you feel in their company.
