Psychotherapy - making contact, getting started
If you would like to explore entering therapy with me, we arrange to meet for an an initial consultation which lasts for seventy minutes. This allows us to explore what has brought you along and to consider what may be the best way forward, including what sort of therapy would seem to be appropriate.
While some people decide to come for a few sessions, others make a long-term commitment as the issues that they are bringing have taken a long time to develop. The number of sessions is something that we would discuss in the initial consultation, although you may choose to make a decision on this as you go along.
Continuing with therapy
If we proceed with therapy after the initial consultation, then I usually see people at least once weekly and each of these sessions last for fifty minutes. I can offer sessions at fixed times each week, or we can negotiate times on a more flexible basis (e.g. to take account of changing working patterns).
