Frequently asked questions about counselling and psychotherapy
How long is a session?
A session lasts 50 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
Once you attend the initial free session to assess whether you wish to enter therapy with me, you can decide how many sessions you would welcome; and, then, you can increase or reduce that number as you wish as you progress.
How often should I have a therapy session?
It is often useful to attend therapy weekly, if possible, for most benefit arising out of whatever issue or issues you may bring to therapy. Of course, that may not be feasible for you due to your circumstances, in which case other timings that could help you can be discussed.
