How sessions work

When we first meet we will talk about what matters to you, and what you would like to see different as a result of counselling.

You can decide on whether to have your sessions in the counselling room, or if you would prefer to walk and talk.

I offer weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes. The length of time each person attends depends on the complexity of their issues and their own wishes. On average I see clients for 12 sessions, you will decide on how long we work together.

How we behave and react to situations is learnt in our early years. I can help you to make sense of what you have learnt by exploring your past, this way of working is known as psychotherapy. I can also help you to look at what you do well and how those strengths can be best utilised to make your life more enjoyable.
