“Re-examine all you have been told….
Dismiss what insults your soul.” Walt Whitman
Individual Psychotherapy & Counselling
In a busy and stressful world it can be difficult to take the time to explore and reflect upon what concerns us. My clients contact me for a number of different reasons. Whilst not exhaustive these include:
Work Life Balance – Work Related Issues – Couples Counselling – Relationship Difficulties – Anger Management – Life Crisis – Stress – Bereavement – Depression – Low Self Esteem – Anxiety – Abuse – Sexuality – Deeper Exploration of Life Experiences
Through psychotherapy, it is possible to make significant and lasting beneficial changes in our lives – psychotherapy can provide the reflective space and conditions needed to explore what troubles us. Through this exploration it is possible to gain insight and understanding for change. My approach is a holistic and integrative one. How we experience ourselves the world and others is unique to everyone of us. I offer both short and long term therapy.
The purpose of this session is to explore your therapy requirements and how I might be able to help you. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about therapy. As part of my commitment to good practice, during this first session I will be taking a personal history from you, which will include taking your GP details. If we are both happy to proceed, we would agree a number of sessions to begin with, usually six. These first few sessions allow us to explore what you wish to work through and we can both decide whether to continue our sessions together.
There are no right or wrong answers as to how many sessions there should be. The length of the therapy is tailored to you and what you are looking for from your therapy. We would regularly review together the number of sessions and your goals of the therapy.
Therapy and counselling for individuals is a regular weekly commitment. If we both feel that my services could be beneficial to you we would agree a regular weekly time, this would be your appointment time. As this time is reserved specifically for you there is a cancellation notice period of 7 days. All sessions are paid for at the beginning of each session by cash or cheque, missed or cancelled sessions without the 7 days notice given, are paid for by bank transfer or at the next session. All sessions are 50 minutes from your appointment time.
