Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How many sessions will I/or my child need to attend?
A. That really depends what each persons challenges are. I recommend at least 3 sessions. At session 3 we will discuss the way forward.
Q. How often do I/or my child need to come?
A. I usually recommend the second session within 3 weeks of the first. This is because it gives you a chance to experience the program at home and give me feedback about how it is working for you/and your family. I can then adjust the program accordingly.
