What to Expect:
An initial email or telephone call to discuss whether psychological therapy may be suitable and of benefit to you. This is free of charge.
A first consultation appointment of 90 minutes for a discussion that will include a thorough assessment of the current difficulties as they are, key life events and a history of the problem (when it started etc). By the end of the first appointment it is hoped that there is enough of a shared understanding of the difficulty to inform the desired nature and length of therapy along with a tentative action plan required for resolving the issue. Initial consultation will involve establishing the therapeutic contract and completion of some standardised therapeutic questionnaires. It may be that this initial consultation is enough for someone to have a better understanding of their difficulty and this is sufficient for them at the current time. There is no obligation to proceed with therapy if you have this first initial consultation appointment.
After the first session, sessions are 50 minutes. It is advised sessions are weekly however regularity can be arranged according to a frequency that is preferable to you and your needs.
Friends or family attending individual therapy sessions is not allowed as this is considered to impede the therapy process.
The importance of someone being seen as quickly as possible when they are in distress and seeking help is appreciated therefore an initial appointment is attempted as soon as possible from initial contact.
