Some Information about your visit.
- All visits/sessions will still be 60 minutes long, but not all of that 60 minutes will be in the Clinic:

- 40 minutes will be face to face in the clinic.
- 10 minutes will be used by the therapist to write up your ‘homework’ after the session and email this to you.
- If this is your first visit, the pre-session call will last longer as there is more information to be discussed.
