The most important thing when you come to me for a telephone session is the assessment. “What degree do I feel represents what I am feeling?” is the first thing I’m looking to see the patient tell me. If I cannot quit smoking, for instance, and the degree of wanting a cigarette every day, if ten is the highest degree that represents that addiction feeling, one is the least, before you and I begin, we will assess the parameters. Where are they? 8 out of 10? 9 out of 10? If it’s drugs, likewise. If it’s a craving for alcohol, likewise. I will have you assign the number that represents the magnitude if 10 is the highest and the worst and one is the least, we will start from there this journey.

Yes, I did feel a, b, c, are some other things that will be discussed. It’s quite simple. Our time together will be non-invasive but will be a transition, awareness, change, awareness of feelings as we work, though we’re not face-to-face.
