Your FREE initial consultation does not obligate you to start therapy sessions. Your initial consult allows you to explain the problems you've been having and for me to explain how I can help you. Then, you can decide in your own time as to whether you would like to go forward with therapy. Please be rest assured that integrity and confidentiality are my priority. If I am not the best person to help you I will recommend a more suitable therapist, or organisation to pursue.
