Most therapists will offer an initial introductory assessment session in order to get an understanding of the issues the client wants to address. If the client decides after an assessment process that sessions are going to be helpful, the therapist will offer a fifty-minute session that takes place at the same time each week. The length of the therapy process itself varies according to the individual needs of the client. For some this might mean a limited number of sessions, agreed upon in our initial consultation. This might suit people who are coming with a specific issue of a recent nature, who are looking for time-limited, focused counselling. Others may have difficulties that have troubled them for some time and can be helped with longer-term psychotherapy. It is long-term, regular sessions that provide the possibility for working in a deeper way to bring about long-lasting and profound change.
Our therapists offer online sessions. We have completed appropriate training in the ethics and practicalities of working with clients in this manner and follow BACP guidelines.
We remain bound by the ethical code of confidentiality enforced by the BACP. Anything you share is treated with the strictest confidentiality; we take relevant data protection steps to protect your privacy.
The first step is to get in touch via email or text; you can find the contact details of each therapist on their personal pages on this site. When you contact us, you can provide as much or as little information as you choose. We will then arrange an initial consultation, which is a chance for us to connect and understand what you might be looking for. It is also a chance for you to ask any questions you may have.
This might be your first experience of therapy, and the uncertainty around what to expect can often feel daunting. The first step of reaching out can often be the hardest part. It is our aim to make you feel at ease throughout the process so that you can explore what has been troubling you. The experience of talking with a therapist differs from talking to family, friends or loved ones. In therapy, you can say exactly what you feel without fear of hurting or upsetting those who care about you within a safe environment.
Cost of therapy depends on the individual psychotherapist and their experience. This is something to discuss directly with your chosen therapist.
