Sessions will be for 50 minutes starting at the agreed time. We can work face-to-face or remotely (by telephone or secure video link). They will usually be weekly but we will discuss what would work best for you. In the first session we will discuss how we will work together and sign an agreement to summarise this. The number of sessions depends on each situation. We will review our work regularly to ensure that your needs are being met.
