Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychotherapist?

We all encounter uncomfortable feelings at some point or another within our lives. A great deal of emotions such as disappointment, hopelessness, anxiety and stress typically occur as a part of normal everyday life. As an example, it is actually quite normal to experience some level of anxiety or stress prior to an exam or performance.

Where it may be a problem is when these emotions overwhelm you so much that it becomes challenging for you to perform normally in your usual daily life. If you are anxious, tearful, have eating issues, sleep disorders, have poor attention, are lacking direction, have very low energy and enthusiasm, are drinking alcohol or using drugs to the extreme, have persistant low mood, having difficulties managing your temper or getting along with people, then you ought to very seriously think about visiting a psychotherapist.

Giving you the opportunity to ask any questions, before making up your mind with regards to continuing with the treatment. You will receive honest answers to any questions you might have along with a realistic estimate of the number of sessions you would require. Also this initial session gives me the chance to determine if I can help you. If I don’t believe that I can help, I will not waste your time, and may refer you to someone with more applicable experience.

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

How many sessions will I need?

Given that people are different this is often a very difficult question to answer without talking to you in much more depth. For short-term brief therapy working with a specific problem, you will usually need to budget for at least 8 to 12 sessions. For more deep rooted, life-long, chronic, or multifaceted problems needing longer term psychotherapy or counselling, far more sessions will obviously be required. Sessions normally take place weekly, but this can be negotiated to suit your circumstances. After our initial consultation I will have a lot better sense of both you together with the concerns you would like to work on, and will be able to give you a better estimate.
