Assessment

One of the most important aspects of counselling is the professional relationship between you and your therapist. Your initial assessment will be a short and informal chat with our counsellor around your goals and objectives around what you wish to gain from the therapeutic process.

This will also include gathering referral information, contact and personal information and acknowledgment and agreement of the client-counsellor contract.

Intervention / Therapeutic Process

Counselling is about change. Remember you are in control of your sessions therefore, you can choose what you wish to bring into the room.

This will involve the exploration of issues you wish you focus on using a combination of the different approaches.

Ongoing Review

Most counselling sessions tend to be around 6-8 sessions however, at Fit for Life as your sessions are tailored to individual needs, some clients may require more. Your counsellor will check-in and review this with you and there is also an option to book review sessions in the future.

John Quigg has been fantastic in helping prepare my shoulder for surgery. I have been to lots of physiotherapists in the past who have given me an almost impossible amount of exercises to do. John explained clearly the areas my shoulder is weak in and gave me a more focused and manageable set of exercises. I was able to keep on top of these and as a result I experienced less pain and my shoulder felt much stronger
