  • What will therapy be like?
    Therapy is a unique experience, where you can explore your world within a non-judgmental, trusting and confidential relationship. From here, you'll gain greater awareness and understanding of yourself, the patterns of your thoughts, emotions and behaviours, and where new choices can be found. There are many therapeutic approaches (hundreds!) and a whole world of techniques and theories used by therapists. Interestingly, research has shown the most important aspect of therapy to be the nature of the relationship between you and the therapist, rather than any specific technique or theory. In the end, it is about finding the therapist that works for you.
  • What will happen at our first session?
    In our first meeting we will look at what brings you to therapy and explore what you hope to gain from counselling. I will be interested in hearing more about you and you will be able to ask about how I work. We can discuss how counselling might be able to support you and how we might work together in a collaborative way. Your first session will be charged at a reduced rate of £30 and will last 50 minutes.
  • What happens after our first session?
    Should we decide to work together, sessions will take place at the same time each week and will last fifty minutes. Each session costs £65. There is no rule about how long therapy should last - it can range from a few weeks to a number of years. It is important to attend regularly, to maintain a sense of safety and continuity. We will regularly review how the therapy is progressing, and it will be your choice as to how long you wish to keep coming. Through therapy you can learn more about who you are and understand the choices that have led you to where you are today. You will then be able to begin to make new choices and become more of who you would like to be.
  • What's the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?
    You will see these terms used in a variety of ways, by different people, to describe what is essentially a talking therapy. So it's probably easiest to refer to what I offer as therapy.
  • Why do people go to therapy?
    There is no rule for what you should and should not attend therapy for. There may be a specific crisis or problem that you need help with. You may wish to get in touch with yourself at a deeper level to try to unravel the patterns that seem to hold you back or you may see it as an opportunity for personal development. If you feel you need some help and support, therapy could be for you.
