What to Expect
I offer an initial 40 minute consultation to talk though how counselling may help you and allow you to decide whether I am the right therapist for you. As I have experience working as a Psychodynamic counsellor and as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, this may be a good opportunity to consider what might work best for you. If you decide you would like to continue with me, we would normally meet on a weekly bases at the same time for 50 minute sessions.
I am often asked how long it will take, and this is a very difficult question to answer. The one thing we can be sure of is the uniqueness of each persons experience of counselling and how change happens. For this reason I offer open ended therapy and work with you from there. However if there is a specific issue you would like to focus on for short term work, it can be useful to set a time limit of 8 to 12 sessions, which can of course be reviewed.
All sessions are confidential and I practice under the codes of ethics of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) http://www.bacp.co.uk.
