For any counseling to be effective, you must feel safe and comfortable. This is the main reason why we allow our first session to be free.
It’s also the time that you are able to share your concerns and why you are seeking help.
Generally, what will be talked about are the counselees issues and concerns, what the counselors methods are, a general strategy plan which may include our final goal, and breakdown of the fees.
This is the time where you can get a feel of the counselor, ask any question and experience first hand the environment you will be in during the sessions.
