Frequently Asked Questions

How much commitment is required from me?

You need to commit to the therapy sessions on a regular basis for them to be effective.

How long might therapy last for?

The duration of therapy will be discussed at the assessment, depending on whether short term counselling or longer term psychotherapy is indicated.

How does therapy end?

Ending is important and is best negotiated between the client and the therapist.

Is there any flexibility over fees?

There is some flexibility for those on low incomes, and for students in training as counsellors or psychotherapists.
We can discuss this at assessment.

Do you work with people who have a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia?

No. It is more appropriate for them to be seen by a psychiatrist.
