Taking the decision to enter into therapy is a daunting prospect and my aim is to help you to feel at ease at every stage of the process. I do this by working with you, at your pace and towards your goals, whatever they may be. I am able to work with adults, children and their families.
The initial consultation will be a chance for you to tell me about what is troubling you, we will work towards developing an understanding of what may have caused the problem and how it is impacting you. This initial appointment may last up to 90 minutes after which I will be able to let you know how many therapy sessions you will need. CBT is an effective short-term treatment and a course of therapy can vary from between 6 sessions upwards. For more serious problems, you may need up to 20 sessions. Each session usually lasts between 45 and 60 minutes.
Therapy is currently being delivered via Microsoft Teams in order to remain COVID safe. Having been working this way now for over a year, I am confident that virtually delivered therapy is just as effective as in person with the added benefit of increased comfort, security and flexibility. Therapy works best if you are able to commit to regular weekly sessions. I am able to offer discounted rates if you book a number of sessions in advance.
