What to expect in therapy

Therapy Session

There are many different approaches in counselling. Below is an overview of what to expect when starting therapy with me.

First session

The first session is a chance to meet me and find out if my approach is for you. I will ask some questions about how you've been feeling and together we can work out what you would like to get out of counselling. You might decide to have just a few sessions or more long-term therapy.  Either way I can see you face to face or online. 

Beginning therapy sessions

After the first session, therapy happens in your way and at your pace.  Coming to therapy gives you time to untangle your thoughts and feelings and discover what is important to you.  This might mean looking at the impact of events upon you or the relationships in your life, both with yourself and other people. 

What you want out of therapy

As therapy progresses, you will gain a better understanding of how you got to where you are today and, if you choose to, have support to make changes in your life.  I may give you information or offer suggestions but I won't tell you what to do.  You may want to set goals to work towards or talk about what comes up in session each week - I am led by you. 

Making changes

Therapy is a demanding process; changing familiar patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaivour can be challenging. It is important to me to listen with compassion and empathy so you feel understood and find greater self-acceptance.   

Cost of sessions

Sessions are 50 minutes 
Face to Face and Online
1st session £25

All other sessions £48

Although I suggest trying therapy for six sessions on a weekly basis, I am flexible about the frequency of sessions.  Contact me to discuss your needs
