HOW WE WORK

Our team of experienced therapists are trained in a range of evidence-based therapies, which we tailor to meet your individual needs. With so many therapies on offer, we understand how confusing and overwhelming it can be. However, we are here to help you navigate this.

Single Session

You may not want or need ongoing therapy but still want to speak to an experienced therapist about a specific question or dilemma you are facing. We know that a session or two can be enough to help you feel heard, gain clarity and to go away with some ideas to take forward. This approach is known as Single-Session Therapy.

Prior to the appointment, we ask you to complete a brief form. In this we ask you to clarify what you would like to work on in the session so that we can maximise the time we have together.

After the appointment, we will send a summary of the action points discussed.

What is included:

  • A 50-minute session online or by phone
  • A brief email afterwards outlining some ideas to take forward
Fee £150

This is for you if:

  • You have a specific question or dilemma you would like to explore
  • You are unsure if therapy is for you right now, but you would like to speak to an experienced and skilled therapist

This is not for you if:

  • You are seeing another therapist or mental health professional
  • You have a number of difficulties or have been experiencing longstanding difficulties with your mental health (an assessment for therapy may be more appropriate in this instance)
  • You are currently in crisis and need urgent support

Therapy

You might have come to us having never had therapy before, or maybe you have tried a number of approaches and are looking for something different. Whatever your circumstance, we want to make sure that we match your individual needs and requests to the most effective and evidence-based therapy available.

Prior to allocating you to a therapist, we offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation to discuss what you are looking for. If we do not feel we are the right service for you, we will do our best to signpost you to somewhere that is.

Once we allocate you to one of our therapists, you will meet with them for a more in-depth assessment (normally around 1-4 sessions depending on your needs). During the assessment phase, we will ask a number of questions to explore the nature of your difficulties, how long you have been experiencing them, what things you have tried before and your hopes and goals for therapy. We will also use some questionnaires that help us to measure change as therapy progresses.

Following the assessment phase, we will develop a shared understanding of what has been causing you distress and make suggestions for the type of therapy that is best suited to your needs. Based on this, we can give some indication of the number of sessions you may need. However, we find that therapy is most helpful when we review your progress regularly (e.g. every 6 – 10 sessions) so that we can keep your goals in mind.

As you come to the end of therapy, we will think about ways in which to maintain the progress you have made. It can often be helpful to have a follow up session with your therapist after three months and then again after six months. This can be an opportunity to discuss any challenges you may have experienced or just to reflect on the positive changes you have made. These appointments can be face to face, by telephone or online.
