The Consultation Process

“Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.” – Josh Billings

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” – Socrates

When you first come to Touch Therapy, we will together do a thorough assessment of your lifestyle, health history and reasons for coming for treatment. It is a requirement within the Code of Ethics of the Federation of Holistic Therapists of which I am a member, which also demands my confidentiality on your details. But more importantly, it’s a most essential element of any complimentary therapy for a number of reasons:

Not in any particular order of importance….

  • it involves you in your commitment to well-being – I’m not just doing something to you – By coming for complementary therapy you are taking responsibility for your own health in a positive way
  • as a therapist, it is important that I check you have no conditions for which a particular therapy might be unsuitable or that I need to work round. There are some conditions for which we would need to check with your GP about suitability for certain therapies.
  • it gives a baseline on which to note improvements over subsequent treatments
  • it’s an opportunity for you to take a step back and examine yourself holistically – ‘looking at the cards you hold’ – it’s interesting what connections you might see that hadn’t occurred to you before.
  • the assessment gives us time to establish a rapport so you feel at ease during the treatment and get maximum benefit
  • we discuss which therapy is appropriate and most therapeutic for you, what you might prefer or what you don’t like or want
  • I explain how the therapy proceeds and what you can expect to experience during and after the treatment
  • you ask questions

On subsequent visits I allow time for you to feedback and update on your situation, so further treatments continue to be refined to your needs.
