Assessment and Referral Procedure
So that people get to the right person to deal with their specific issues, experience has told us that an Assessment procedure is the best way to ensure that this occurs.
The Assessment procedure is run by Bob Cooke TSTA who is an experienced Psychotherapist, who will talk through your presenting issues and specific problems, and guide you to the right Therapist or Counsellor for you.
This process takes approximately half an hour. If you find that the Therapist that Bob has recommended is not for you, you can come back to Bob, and he will recommend another counsellor/therapist that may be more suitable for you.
After the initial assessment you will be referred to the Counsellor/Therapist of your choice, and then the Counsellor and yourself will work out the frequency and duration of your Counselling.
The Counselling/Therapy usually is one hour of duration on a weekly basis.
In terms of how many sessions you will need to resolve your issues, the best thing is to bring this up in the initial session, and Bob can give you some advice on that! Indeed the initial session is the place to ask all your questions and queries concerning the Therapeutic/Counselling process.
Counselling for Children and Adolescents
