Amanda Melton (Sidwell)
I offer a calm and confidential space that allows us to consider what might be troubling you. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed? It might be that you are struggling to cope with a recent crisis or looking to resolve longstanding issues, both of which I can help with. It can be enormously helpful to share your thoughts and feelings with someone who is impartial, understanding and informed.
What I offer:
+ 12 Week Short-term Time Limited Therapy:
This involves agreeing on a goal and working within this focus.
+ Long-term Open Ended Therapy:
Different themes are allowed to emerge helping us to build a deeper understanding of what lies behind thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour.
Many clients opt for the latter therapy, especially where the source of the problem isn’t clear.
After your initial contact we will arrange a consultation. A consultation may last between 60 – 90 minutes. In this time we can talk about why you have come to therapy and whether I am the right person to help you.
Thereafter, sessions will take place once a week at an agreed time and on the same day of the week. Each session will last 50 minutes.
