Free Initial Counselling Consultation

Get to know Dr Damian first with

a 30-minute free initial counselling consultation

Why offer a free initial counselling consultation? Deciding which counsellor to work with in Wells, Somerset or anywhere online can be a challenge. It is important that the therapist (counsellor/psychotherapist/psychologist) you choose is a good fit for you because research suggests that the relationship you build with your counsellor has a significant impact on the outcome of any counselling intervention.

I offer all potential clients a free 30-minutes phone or video conversation. During our conversation, you will have an chance to explore:

  • What you are concerned about
  • Your counselling goals
  • Your previous experiences with counselling
  • Ask me questions regarding their past experiences with similar concerns as yours
  • Ask me about how I work with clients and what therapeutic orientations I use when counselling people
  • Ask questions about costs, timescales and frequency of sessions

Don’t worry if you are not sure about what you want from counselling; often people will say to me that they don’t know what is wrong. This is normal and often what people think is the case of the problem is a symptom of a different emotional issue.

When booking a session please make sure you read my terms of service.

My counselling focus:

Like many counsellors, I often work in a generic way, covering many different areas. However, I do specialise in issues where communication between people are an issue. For example, by offering marriage counselling, working with anger management, workplace bullying issues. But communication doesn’t always mean issues between people but inside ourselves (just think about the times you end up arguing with yourself – and losing!). Often depression, anxiety, low self esteem, lack of confidence all have an element of the way we communicate with ourselves.
