AN INITIAL CONSULTATION FOR PSYCHOTHERAPY
As a trained psychotherapist in Brighton, Mark Fletcher provides an opportunity to help enable you to explore and look at the nature and extent of your presenting difficulties, in a safe and confidential setting and in a non-judgemental atmosphere.
The initial consultation will give you an experience of what psychotherapy might be like. It can stir up difficult feelings and painful memories, but the process of putting your feelings and thoughts into words can bring hope and relief.
MAKING A DECISION ABOUT PSYCHOTHERAPY
The initial consultation will help you to make a decision about whether you feel psychoanalytic therapy might help you with your difficulties. By the end you might feel ready to make a decision to start therapy or you may feel you need time to think about it or seek further consultations with other therapists. There are times when it can be agreed that there should be an extended period of assessment or trial of psychotherapy.
