Therapy can feel mysterious but I make the process clear and consistent.
Relationships are central to effective therapy so it is important for us to meet first before deciding to work together. I offer a ‘no obligations’, initial meeting which lasts for one hour and in this time we can talk about your reasons for coming, what you might like to gain from the process and I can answer any questions you may have.
If we decide we could work usefully together, meetings take place at the same venue at an agreed time(s) of the week. I practise in central Salisbury and sessions last for 50 minutes. Our work is confidential and we work in line with a mutually agreed contract.
In our sessions you are encouraged to talk about whatever is on your mind, while I listen deeply. In this safe, non-judgemental space, we work together to explore the things that might be contributing to your problems. It can be painful to face difficult issues, but I will be there to support you.
It really depends on your individual and ongoing needs. Helping someone manage a current crisis may take anywhere from a few sessions to up to 6 months of weekly therapy. For deeper, longstanding challenges meeting for 1-2 years can be more helpful. Long term, open-ended work is also available.
An initial 50 minute meeting to explore whether we want to work together will incur no cost and there is no obligation to continue.
If we decide to work together, as a psychotherapist in training, subsequent 50 minute sessions will cost £30.
