How does Therapy work?
As a therapist, I will work with you to help you improve your mental health and wellbeing. Before our first therapy session, I offer a complimentary 30 minute start-up consultation to decide if we have the 'right chemistry' to work together and to confirm that therapy is appropriate. This can be either in-person or online to suit your preferences.
Sometimes it's easier to talk to a professional than family or friends. During therapy, I listen to you and we work together to find answers to your problems - in private, confidentially and without judgement.
Each therapy session is 1-2-1 and lasts approximately 60 minutes. They'll usually be completed in-person but you might prefer to work together via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime etc or even just over the telephone. You will have the time and space to think , talk, consider options, make choices and take action.
It's an opportunity to look at your problems in a different way with someone who will respect you, listen to your experiences and understand your needs.
Will therapy fix my problems?
The main aim of therapy is to help you feel better. We'll work together to:
Let Go - of negative emotions such as Anger, Sadness, Fear, Hurt and Guilt.
Take Action - to address anxiety, build confidence, motivation, energy and a sense of purpose.
Move Forward - create a positive future with a strong sense of purpose through personal goals, actions and outcomes.
