Stepping Stones therapists generally work in a '12 session model' but all decisions surrounding duration of sessions will be agreed in the assessment session, with both short and long term therapy being possible. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are payable at the time of the session.
Our approach to therapy enables each client, as an individual, to process and work through thoughts, patterns of behaviour and life challenges, as well as meet times of crisis with a reflective mind.
Our work with people is focused upon enabling them to develop and improve their quality of life, and explore any problems and difficulties, whatever they may be caused by.
Life's stress can derive from a wide variety of sources including relationship difficulties, work pressures, family histories and dynamics, as well as social anxieties, self-esteem and image issues and other mental health difficulties. Human experience also often involves trauma and bereavement, which, when unexplored, can lead to noticeable relational difficulties in all manners of life, not just with those we are closest to.
