with you every step of the way
The initial consultation offers time to discuss psychotherapy and how it might help you.
Up to an hour and a half is allowed for that first appointment to allow time to talk about the current problem or reasons for coming.
Relationships, social and work situations as well as past experiences including childhood will also be explored. A referral to an organisation or another type of therapy can be made if that is more appropriate.
If it is decided to continue with psychotherapy, we will come to a decision about whether that will be on a once weekly basis or more frequently, depending upon the degree of anxiety or depth of the problem.
Appointments are made for a regular day and time and last for 50 minutes.
Sometimes it can be desirable to focus on a particular issue if other areas in life are manageable. The minimum number of sessions would be six weekly although up to six months might also be arranged if necessary.
