Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychotherapist / Counsellor?

We all encounter uncomfortable feelings at some time or another within our lifes. A lot of emotions such as sadness, hopelessness, anxiety and stress normally occur as a part of living life. As an example, it is very normal to experience anxiety or stress prior to a job interview or exam.

Where it might be a problem is when these emotions engulf you so much that it becomes difficult for you to perform normally in your day to day life. If you are anxious, tearful, have eating or sleep problems, have poor attention, are lacking direction, have very low energy and enthusiasm, are drinking or using drugs excessively, have persistant low mood, having difficulty managing your temper or getting along with people, then you ought to seriously think about visiting a psychotherapist.

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

I recognise that it is crucial that you feel comfortable with your therapist. Which is exactly why I offer an Initial Consultation Session with no obligation to continue.

Cheshire Psychotherapy  |  Lancashire Psychotherapist  | Cheshire Counsellor | Lancashire CounsellorThis allows us the chance to meet face-to-face, obtain a detailed case history as well as discuss your problems, expected outcomes and the treatment process, in much more detail. Supplying you with the opportunity to ask any questions, before making up your mind about continuing with the treatment. You will get honest answers to any questions you might have along with a realistic estimate of the number of sessions you may require. Also this initial session gives me the chance to determine if I am able to help you.  If I don’t believe that I can help, I will not waste your time and energy, and may refer you on to someone with more appropriate experience.

If you would prefer to have a brief chat before booking the Initial Consultation session then please call me on 0161 881 4333.

How many sessions of counselling / psychotherapy will I need?

As everyone is different this is a really difficult question to answer without speaking with you in considerably more depth. For short-term brief therapy dealing with a specific problem, you can expect to need to budget for approximately 6 to 12 sessions. For more deep rooted, life-long, chronic, or complex issues necessitating longer term psychotherapy and counselling, much more sessions will obviously be required. Sessions typically occur weekly, however this may be negotiated to suit your circumstances. After our initial consultation I will have a lot better sense of both you and the concerns you need to work on, and will be in a position to give you a better estimate.
