12 Week Interpersonal Psychotherapy
This is a time limited brief therapy. I assess what is going on in your current personal life and where you are having issues. I then formulate a treatment plan with you on the area we will look at. The following weeks are spent focused on achieving that goal. IPT focuses on current problems, It is a treatment program that helps you to master present problems.
Psychoanalytic Counselling - Open ended
Individual counselling sessions take place once a week on the same day and at an agreed time, and last for the therapeutic hour which is 50 minutes. The length of therapy is different for everyone – it can take a few sessions or many months, depending on your situation and your needs. During that hour, you will decide what you want to talk about. Dream work is included as well as elements of IPL – it is your space and you are in charge of the process.
