COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSIONS
If you decide to embark on therapy, we will address any issues you want to bring to the sessions.
Sessions provide a chance for you to reflect on and discover more about yourself, your patterns, and what is troubling you. They are intended to nurture and develop you as an individual, ensuring that you are seen, heard and appreciated. As well as helping you to understand the nature and origins of your current problems, I will also help you to see and use your strengths to build the life you want.
Therapy can happen rapidly, or can unfold over a longer period. It is usually not a quick fix, but it can be transformative. Some of the many benefits include; decreased stress; greater self-awareness and understanding; increased confidence, self-esteem, and self-compassion; more satisfying relationships; and a sense of empowerment and creativity.
Sessions last for 50 minutes, and take place at the same time and place every week. Meeting weekly, at the time that is reserved for you, provides continuity and containment for our work together, which gives you a vital sense of safety and security. Sessions are confidential and you are protected by both the Data Protection Act and the Ethical Guidelines of the BACP and UKCP, the regulatory bodies for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
