How can I be sure that you are the right therapist for me?

I recognise that it is very important that you feel at ease with your therapist. Which is the reason why I offer an Initial Consultation Session with no obligation to continue.

How many sessions will I need?

Since everyone is different this can be a really difficult question to answer without talking to you in significantly more depth. For short-term brief therapy dealing with a particular issue, you will probably need to budget for between 6 to 12 sessions. For more deep rooted, life-long, chronic, or multifaceted issues in need of longer term psychotherapy or counselling, a lot more sessions will of course be needed. Sessions in most cases occur weekly, however this can be negotiated to suit your circumstances. After our initial consultation I will have a far greater sense of both you and the issues you would like to work on, and will be in a position to provide you with a better estimate.
