Frequently Asked Questions

What is counselling and psychotherapy?

Counselling and psychotherapy allow you to explore areas of personal difficulty. It provides space to explore and find a deeper understanding of yourself and discover the resources within yourself.

How long will psychotherapy take?

This depends entirely on you and why you seek to begin the psychotherapy journey. You may have a specific issue to discuss or you may want to make deeper changes in your life and pursue longer-term work.

I offer short term counselling for a period of 3 months where we meet weekly. If you have a desire to undergo long term psychoanalytical psychotherapy work this will be open ended and we decide together when this stops.

Why do i need to speak to a psychotherapist or counsellor? I talk to my friends?

Psychotherapists go through comprehensive training and extensive personal psychotherapy before we can work with you. A psychotherapist will not tell you what to do but support you in figuring out what to do.
