what to expect from my experience at good vibes clinic

During your first visit, there will be an overview of your life, your priorities, concerns, fears and ideals, and an in-depth understanding of what has brought you to therapy. A session will usually encompass an overview of the concerns/issues that you would like to address, a discussion about previous experiences and coaching and education regarding practical tools, reflections and strategies to overcome the issues you are facing to implement outside the therapy room.

Christine is a client-centred therapist, and the experience is focused on you, considering what you hope to achieve by the end of the session (or sessions). It is recommended you come prepared with some ideas for what you want to get out of your experience at Good Vibes Clinic, as it will help us to use your time most effectively. If you aren't really sure what your goals are, that's okay too and the first session can help us in identifying these, if relevant to you.

Regular session time is 60-minutes, with an initial 90-minute session recommended to ensure there is time to understand your specific issues and/or goals, obtain relevant background information and time to provide initial information, reflections and take-away tools to support your journey.
