Booking an Assessment Appointment
It can be difficult to know which therapist to choose and what therapeutic approach is most suitable for your presenting difficulties. Dr Coffey is highly experienced at using the initial appointments to make a connection with the client, to have a collaborative discussion about how she can help and work together with the client to plan and bring about change. The assessment appointment is an opportunity for the client to see if they feel that a working relationship can be established and are comfortable to talk.
If you would like to book an assessment or have any questions then please make contact.
