What does an initial free consultation with an online therapist help with?
Most of therapist would offer a free consultation, and I have been contacted various times asking what the initial free consultation with an online therapist is about.
I cannot say why other therapist do so, but I can tell you, why a free consultation with, me an online CBT and EMDR therapist, is important. So can answer some of the questions from people seeking support.
Importance a free consultation with a therapist
It is an opportunity for you to get to know me. It is a space for you to get to ask about your fears or worries regarding online therapy.
You may want to ask how secure it is, or if it is much more different. Learn about securoty and confidentiality of online therapy.
It is the chance for you to get to know me and ask about, how I may be ablet to support you.
Also, it is an opportunity for you to get the sense if I am the person, you would like support from to share, learn and be your best self.
It is also an opportunity for me to know, I can be of any help to you.
How much do I need to share in a consultation?
As I always say at the beginning of the consultation, I do not ask in depth or detail information. This is not the time to do so, and we need to come to an agreement.
We can discuss if online therapy is a better alternative, than face to face.
You can then go and reflect on what we have discussed, and get back to me. Or we can arrange an initial session on the day.
I hope this clarifies what an online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy consultation or online EMDR consultation looks like.
You can contact me for a free consultation.
