Frequently Asked Questions
Who needs counselling or psychotherapy?
Most people can benefit from therapy but in particular one needs to be open to change and taking a fearless look at oneself. Peoples’ motivation for change can be precipitated by life events or a growing dissatisfaction with their life, maybe a nagging doubt, a persistent feeling of what if, or a sudden and unexplained change in their moods.
How would I know if therapy was right for me?
Therapy might not be right for you but if you were to book an initial assessment we could sit down and discuss your case in detail and from there we can explore if therapy might be able to benefit you.
How long is each session, and how many sessions would I need to commit?
Each session is 50 minutes long, and they are held on the same day and same time for the duration of the therapy.
The therapy contract can be time limited anything from 6 weeks upwards, having a time limit can help to focus the work.
Or alternatively, it can be open ended. In other words, the therapy can be as short or as long as you want.
How much will it cost me?
The regular fee is £45to 55 but I operate a sliding scale based on what you can pay.
