Why should I book a free consultation?
A free therapy consultation can be a great way to explore the benefits of psychotherapy. A therapist will provide you with a brief phone consultation, usually lasting around 15 minutes, in order to help you determine whether Purposeful Change can be helpful to you. During this time, you can discuss your concerns and ask any questions you may have about therapy.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, or just plain stuck, it might be helpful to speak to a professional. A therapist can provide you with the support and guidance you need to overcome your challenges and start living a happier and healthier life.
What to do during your phone consultation
Use this time to get a sense of what to expect from therapy and whether it might be the right fit for you. Be sure to ask your therapist any questions you have about their practice, such as fees, insurance, or confidentiality. This is also an opportunity for you to get to know your therapist and see if you feel comfortable working with them.
Helpful questions to ask during your call
- What is the cost of each session?
- How often should I book an appointment?
- What are the days and times you offer therapy?
- How long will my treatment plan last?
- What’s the process to get started?
