The assessment lasts approximately 30 minutes and takes place with one of our counsellors, who will ask you questions about what your current concerns are. Whilst they are doing this, they will be thinking about what sort of talking therapy could work well for you, based on what you tell them.
The idea at this session is not to ‘open up’ the concerns that you have, but for you to tell a little bit about your background and the situation(s) that have led up to you contacting us. This, together with any previous experience of counselling that you have had, will help us to match you to a therapist – best suited to your needs. We want to get it right for you so that you have a good relationship and experience, which will help you to achieve your goals. Depending on your preference and availability, the assessment could take place online, over the phone or in Cardiff.
