What to expect
We will meet for an initial assessment which will last 50 minutes. It is a chance for you to visit the clinic, meet me and see how you feel about working together. It is also a chance for me to find out what has brought you to therapy, and which aspects of dramatherapy might help you specifically.
We will discuss how many sessions may be needed and arrange a set weekly appointment time. Each session will be for 50 minutes. During the first dramatherapy session, I will support you to set goals for your therapy process and we will set the foundations for working together.
