Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychotherapist or Counsellor?

Helping hand | Psychotherapy Manchester | Counsellor in Manchester | Psychotherapist in Manchester | UKCP Registered Psychotherapist

We all experience painful feelings at one time or another in our lifes. Many feelings such as sadness, hopelessness, doubts, anxiety, and stress naturally arise as part of the daily ebb and flow of living our lives.  However some problems are much more persistent or intense, and just don’t seem to go away.  These are some of the issues that a counsellor or psychotherapist can help with.

When Should I See a Psychotherapist or Counsellor?

You should consider seeing a counsellor or psychotherapist when your thoughts, feelings or behaviours overwhelm you so much that it becomes hard for you to function normally in your day to day life. Or when they are having a detrimental effect on your relationships or the quality of your life.

If you are stressed, tearful, have trouble sleeping or eating, lack confidence, have poor concentration, lack direction, have low energy and motivation, are drinking or using drugs excessively, have persistent low mood, having trouble controlling your temper, or getting along with other people, then you should seriously consider psychotherapy or counselling.

I understand that it is absolutely essential that you feel comfortable with your therapist. Which is why I offer an Initial Consultation Session with no obligation to continue.

Medical insurance

I am currently registered to provide psychotherapy/counselling with the following private health insurance companies:

  • Allianz Worldwide Care: Contact your insurer.
  • Aviva: Through your GP or a consultant.
  • Cigna: Contact your insurer.
  • PruHealth: Referral can only be made through a consultant psychiatrist.
  • WPA Health Insurance: Referrals must come through your GP.

Insurers all have slightly different rules of cover, and it is important to contact your insurer directly to check what your policy covers. You will need to get written proof of authorisation before proceeding.  Most insurers will usually only pay for short-term time-limited treatment for acute issues.

 

Referrals are welcome from:

  • Individuals (self referring for private treatment)
  • General Practitioners (GP)
  • Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP)
  • Psychiatrists
  • Consultants
  • Healthcare Providers
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Businesses

How many psychotherapy / counselling sessions will I need?

As everyone is unique this can be a very difficult question to answer without speaking with you in much more depth first.

Psychotherapy and counselling will require a regular and on-going commitment of your time, with sessions usually taking place on a weekly basis.  As personal change is often a gradual and accumulative process, it could take anywhere from just a few weeks, to a year or more, depending on the type and complexity of the issues you want to work on, your resources, and whether you want to focus on time-limited short-term therapy, or more open ended longer-term psychotherapy.

For time-limited short-term therapy dealing with a very specific issue, you will usually need to budget for around 8 to 12 sessions.

For more deep rooted, life-long, chronic, multiple or complex issues, longer term psychotherapy and counselling lasting from a few months to a year or more would usually be more suitable.

After our initial consultation I will have a much better sense of you, the issues you want to work on, your expected outcomes, and what you are prepared to commit to in terms of time, energy, and finances.  I will then be in a much better position to give you an estimate of the possible duration of the treatment, what might be achievable within your budgetary, energy, and time constraints, and whether short or longer term therapy may be most appropriate.
