Take the first step towards finding what you need in your life going forward.
Therapy is a process where a trained professional helps individuals explore and address their emotional, psychological, or relational challenges. It can provide support, insight, and coping strategies for various life issues.
If you're experiencing difficulties in managing emotions, relationships, trauma or life transitions, therapy can be beneficial. It's a valuable resource for anyone seeking personal growth, self-discovery, or support during challenging times.
Sessions typically last around 50 minutes.
The first session is often an introduction where you share your concerns, and then I gather information about your background, goals, and expectations. It's a collaborative process to ensure the right approach for your needs. In consultation with you, a plan is devised for an individually tailored therapeutic intervention.
Yes, therapy is confidential. Your privacy is a priority, and I adhere to clear ethical guidelines. There are, however, legal exceptions in cases of imminent harm to oneself or others.
Session frequency varies based on individual needs and the therapeutic approach. Initially, weekly sessions are common, but this can decrease as progress is made.

Yes, we provide online therapy sessions for those who prefer remote access or have scheduling constraints. Online therapy is a convenient and effective way to receive support.
Absolutely. Therapy is effective in addressing a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and relationship difficulties.
Consider factors such as the therapist's specialisation, approach, and personality. It's crucial to feel comfortable and have a good rapport. Initial consultations can help you assess compatibility.
The terms are often used interchangeably. However, therapy may imply a more in-depth exploration of psychological issues, while counselling may focus on specific challenges and practical solutions.
This is a common misconception. Therapy can in fact be a great way to explore and understand the issues we navigate in our daily life, including decisions to do with work, relationships or life in general.
Yes, therapy and medication can complement each other. It's important to consult with your prescribing healthcare provider to ensure coordinated care.
Therapy is a collaborative process, and your comfort is crucial. You're in control of what you share, and I always work at a pace that you are comfortable with.
Therapy can enhance self-awareness, improve coping skills, and provide tools to navigate challenges, leading to increased emotional resilience and overall well-being.
Not at all. Seeking therapy is a courageous step toward self-improvement and emotional well-being. It demonstrates strength and a commitment to personal growth.
