Frequently Asked Questions
These are just some of the questions that I get asked. If you have something else that you would like to know the answer to simply give me a call.
How many sessions will I need?
In our initial session, we will focus clearly on what you wish to achieve, and this will give us an idea of whether we are looking at short or longer term work. The length of time really depends on what your issues are. I can work short term or long term. The main thing is to keep reviewing our work together so we know where we are going and whether the sessions are useful to you.

Our sessions will be held in complete confidence. I work within the codes of ethics and practice of The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy UKCP. I am registered with ICO for data protection.
What happens if you uncover other problems?
Discovering the underlying issues is what this is all about. There is no point fixing a symptom if the underlying cause isn't addressed. In this way we will be able to give you a long lasting solution. We will look at short term coping strategies to help along the way to a complete solution.
