Q1. What can I expect from integrative counselling/psychotherapy?

In the first session I will explain what you can expect from counselling and an integrative psychotherapeutic approach. You will also have the opportunity to share some of the issues you face and what you hope to achieve. If you would like to continue therapy further sessions can be booked in the first session.
The aim of therapy is for us to develop a secure relationship based on honesty and respect. Through different approaches I will help you increase your self-awareness and gain a greater understanding of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and how they affect you and your relationships. Together we will find ways that will enable you to move forward in your life with greater emotional resilience and health.

Q2: How many appointments will I need?

Weekly or fortnightly sessions can be booked from one week to the next. Both short and long term therapy is offered. In the first session we will also look at the counselling agreement which will outline what is expected from both therapist and client in terms of attendance and cancellations.

Q3: How much will it cost?

Each session lasts 50 minutes and costs £50.
