Preparing for your Session

Setting up your Space
  • You may wish to sit, stand, move and lie down during a session depending on what unfolds. Please be comfortable. Consider if you'd like to have pillows, a heating pad, or a blanket nearby. Something to put under your knees if you lie down. What would support you in being even more comfortable?
  • Please have water available to drink during your session.
  • If working together via video, consider how close or far you may want to be from the screen, and at what angle. Also consider the height of the screen, so that your head, neck and back are happy.
  • In some cases, you may prefer to turn off your camera. That's welcome. If you’d prefer to connect by phone instead of videoconferencing, please let me know.
  • If you are having your session in a room in which you also work, take some time before your session to transition from work into your session time. You may even wish to change the angle at which you are sitting to break from “work mode”.

Your intention for a session or group of sessions is the star by which your sessions are guided. Sometimes this intention will be clear to you. Sometimes it will be more clearly revealed or honed in our time together.

I will review the Initial Session Questionnaire you submitted prior to our first meeting. I typically will ask you about any intentions you have for our work together at the beginning of your session.


Allow time for integration after your session. It will make them more effective. You may wish to rest, take a walk, journal, write, draw, move, connect with a trusted other, etc. 


Begin to notice your dreams and serendipitous occurrences leading up to and after sessions.
