There are two main factors that will contribute to you getting the maximum potential benefit from your personal or joint journey of discovery and advancement, they are:

  1. Finding a style of counselling, and working together that is right for you (the therapeutic approach).
  2. Finding someone to work with that you connect with and trust, and who treats you with absolute acceptance and respect (the therapeutic relationship).

You cannot know what way of working is and will be right for you, and whether you will connect with the person you are working with until you give it a go.

That is why we recommend you take MANN uP services for a 'test drive', by booking in for your no obligation Introductory Session.

The standard fee for an Introductory Session is only £15.

STRUCTURE of your introductory session

Aim: To provide you with an opportunity to get to know more about MANN uP services, and talk over the topics and themes you might like to explore in your personal or joint journey.

Content:  A confidential and informal conversation where you will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear more about the philosophy behind MANN uP services, and therapeutic approaches applied.
  • Learn about the practicalities of the programme process (booking, records, confidentiality etc.).
  • Ask whatever questions about participation you may have.

As part of the introductory session, a 'light touch' preliminary assessment is carried out that helps identify any life events, challenges or strong mood states that are could be impacting on you.

During your assessment, there will be opportunity for you to discuss (in as much detail as you are comfortable with), issues or concerns relating to your life, wellbeing or relationship that you might like to work on in your programme.

Duration: Your introductory session will last for approximately 50 minutes.

Format: Your personal programme introductory session can be delivered in either a face-to-face or online format, depending on your preference. Your joint programme introductory session will be delivered in a face-to-face format.
