Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT DOES COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY ENTAIL?
It is an ongoing, unfolding process of discovery - a journey undertaken together.
WHAT IF I AM NOT SURE?
You may be feeling confused, undecided, or simply know that something just isn't sitting right with you. You might also not be completely clear in your own mind about what the true nature or sources of your own challenges are. Exploring what it is that you want to change with a trained counsellor or psychotherapist can assist you with moving forward in a way that changes or enhances your life.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN BE EXPECTED?
Positive benefits might include achieving a greater sense of balance in your life, as well as feeling a lot more at ease with yourself. You might also become less concerned with others' views and what they feel you should or should not be doing. It can feel very life altering initially, as well as exciting, when new doors open up for you. You might find yourself in a place where you feel you are taking responsibility for what you want, where you want to go and how you want to be.
HOW LONG ARE SESSIONS AND HOW MANY DO I NEED?
Session generally last 50 minutes, once or twice a week. However, I also sometimes do double sessions, where it is jointly agreed that this would be beneficial.
Psychotherapy is an ongoing process, the duration of which we will jointly assess from time to time.
WHAT ARE THE FEES?
Therapy can be either shorter-term or longer-term, depending on the nature of the issue presented. This can be discussed at the initial consultation. Fees typically range from £60 to £75 per session, based on a standard weekly meeting. However, if more frequent sessions are required, I may be able to offer a slight reduction.
