The first appointment is called a consultation. At this meeting we will discuss the following possibilites:
Parent Advice Sessions
Three or six fortnightly appointments.
Fortnightly sessions for six appointments, with a review in session six. Then extendable to twelve sessions if appropriate.
Most sessions take place fortnightly or monthly. I find that these intervals between sessions allow time for families to put new ideas into practice.
Sometimes a one-off meeting may be enough to move things forward or I may recommend other resources or signpost elsewhere.
