Every new client attends an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for you to discuss your reasons for seeking out therapy and what you hope to gain from it. We encourage you to ask if you have any questions about the process of psychotherapy and at the end both make a decision about whether we feel we would work well together.
Our therapists have a range of appointment times, some during the day and some in the evening or at weekends. This depends on the availability of the individual therapist.
The sessions are usually once weekly however more frequent sessions may in some instances be advisable.
Our therapists have a certain cancellation notice period in place. We work on the basis that when a commitment is made to the psychotherapy process your allocated space will not be offered to anyone else and therefore both commit to a regular engagement with therapy.
Our therapists offer short-term or longer-term therapy. This can be discussed at the initial consultation. We would usually advise a commitment to a minimum of six sessions, once the decision to work together is taken. Some clients like to start therapy with the feeling that it is open-ended.
Counselling is usually shorter-term and focused on a particular issue; psychotherapy is typically longer-term and involves a deeper level psychological exploration; psychotherapists have had a longer training and been through considerable personal therapy themselves. While the training our therapists have is in psychotherapy we also have experience in offering counselling.
