WHY CHOOSE A PSYCHOLOGIST?
Increasingly, psychology is becoming a more and more popular treatment for individuals who want to feel more in control of their lives.
We understand it can be difficult for you to decide which course of treatment is best suited to your needs, which is why here at Lenzie Psychology, our team draw upon a wide range of theories.
We can assess which strand of psychology will work for you, and it may be we draw together several strands in order to create the most effective treatment programme for your needs.
WHY COME AND SEE US?
It may be that you have tried other forms of treatment in the past, but that these have not delivered what you were hoping for.Possibly you have found the type of support you want, but cannot access it quickly enough or as often as you would like.
Here at Lenzie Psychology, we can respond quickly to client requests, and will ensure one of our psychologists calls you back within 24 hours of your initial enquiry.
We can work with you either on a 1:1 basis, or in a group - it would be your preference.
We will focus on the issues important to you, and work with you to find a way to move forward. Often we suggest you do work between sessions, which will hopefully speed your recovery.
Our sessions usually last for one hour, and in your initial session, you would meed the psychologist and make sure they are right for you. If not, then we can try someone else.
We would then listen to your story - you don't have to tell us everything, but just enough so we can devise a programme which will enable us to move forward.
We can then start working on different ways on how to improve your life, either through discussion, learning new skills or practical tasks.
As we progress, we will constantly review how you are doing and refine how we work with you as we go along.
Usually most of our clients come to see us from between 6-8 sessions, and by the end of the sessions, we hope that you are feeling stronger, better and quite content to finish our work at this stage.
However, if you feel you want to touch base with us again in the future, then we are more than happy to find out how you are doing and offer some top up support if needed.
