  • What is Psychotherapy?
    Psychotherapy is a particular type of counselling that involves working with the client using various theories of human behaviour and change. Psychotherapists use specific approaches to questioning to dig deep to discover why the client behaves in a certain way based on subconscious motives and behaviours. By bringing the subconscious, conscious, the therapist and client work together to rebuild new coping skills, behaviours and outlook on life.
  • What are the benefits of Psychotherapy?

  • How long does it take to see a difference and to feel better after a therapy session?
    Some people only need one session to feel a difference in themselves, depending on the issue presenting on the day. Others might need a longer period of time with at least 10 sessions to make major changes in their life. It also depends on how much the client wants to take control of making the necessary changes in their life.
  • How long is a therapy session?
    All sessions are 1 hour long
  • What can I expect in a therapy session?
    In the first session, the counsellor will ask you several questions about your concerns and then the session will be a question and answer situation which will unwind naturally, depending upon your presenting issues and concerns. We will discuss these concerns in a private and confidential setting. Counsellors are trained to listen carefully to your issues, to ascertain any hidden or unknown areas that may arise for you. We then work together over a period of time to map out a road map to happiness and to equip you with healthy coping skills and behaviours. My style as a therapist is to set 'homework' regularly, in which we discuss at the following session. Sometimes the sessions can be deeply emotional. As a counsellor I am trained to hold space for you in a caring and empathetic environment.
