I believe that the basis of any therapeutic work is a strong and safe relationship that enables the client to be open and honest in a non-judgmental and understanding environment. Whether you have had therapy before or not, taking the first step to start therapy can feel like a daunting one. You may feel unsure of what to expect or whether it will be right for you.
It is important to find a therapist and a way of working that is right for you and therefore there is no obligation to commit to therapy until you are sure that it is the right ‘fit’ for you. I believe that the process of therapy should be transparent, flexible and collaborative to allow you to get what you need from the process.
