Why I Don't Offer Free First Sessions?

The reason I do not offer a free first consultation is it tends to foster a therapeutic impasse. A free consultation places the responsibility on the therapist to convince the client they have a problem and need help. I work from the position of the client having acknowledged his/ her powerlessness and unmanageability over his/ her problem behaviour and readiness to do what it takes to start on the recovery journey. This therapeutic position tends to invite fewer service enquiries but also tends to provide a more ready, willing, and capable participant  for the intensive task work required. The most successful client is the one who has shown the courage to convince him or herself that they have a problem and must help themselves first.
