• About therapy

    Therapy allows a non-judgemental and open space where a person can be heard. Sessions allow a person to understand their difficulties, how they developed and what is keeping it going. The aim is to to develop personalised goals and work towards them using a collaborative and compassionate stance.

     

    Therapy sessions will begin with an initial consultation to explore the current problems. The purpose is to assess your needs and get an idea of what you would like to focus on in therapy. In this initial session, we can start to consider what would be the type of therapy that is suitable and whether short or long term therapy is best. These considerations might also evolve during therapy and with your needs.
