WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSION?
The therapeutic process seeks to enable you to decide on how to manage your life and make the choices that can lead to greater fulfillment. As a psychotherapist I offer a facilitative relationship so that you can reach the unique answers that suit you.Together we will consider your life and how you experience it with the aim of understanding the aspects with which you are currently struggling.
The initial session will last for 50 minutes and we will explore what has brought you to counselling or psychotherapy, what you would like to achieve and agree a plan for how to proceed including session times, length, frequency and duration. Generally I recommend starting with a weekly session for six weeks at which point if you are finding the sessions helpful we continue. Sessions are confidential and I work within the UKCP's ethical frameworks, details of which are available on their website
