Establishing the therapeutic relationship

In order to see how therapy can be helpful to you, we will need a preliminary meeting to enable us to consider the way your problems are affecting you and discuss ways forward.

- Initial consultation serves as a space to assess what suits you and may serve as an unit on its own
- We will discuss whether talking therapy is best suited to your needs and if so what kind of therapy will be likely to be most helpful
- I provide an assessment service that may include referral to other health professionals and psychotherapists for specialised work or to consultant psychiatrists

I call the First Session the assessment session the chance for you to assess if I am the right person for you. It also gives me the opportunity to understand what you are looking for and to see if I feel what I can offer will suit you. It is sometimes useful to extend this to a second session before making an agreement to work together. This agreement may be for a set number of sessions - perhaps six or ten - or be left open. I work with people for any length of time according to their needs. This is determined by regular reviews of our work together.

How I deliver therapy

- I offer a range of long-term and short-term therapies for individuals (young people, adults, later life stages)
- All sessions are one-to-one, with each session lasting 50 minutes, once-weekly unless otherwise agreed
- I also offer group therapy session
