What is therapy, and how can it help me?

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.


How do I know if I need therapy?

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.


How long does a therapy session typically last?

Sessions typically last around 50 minutes.


What can I expect during my first therapy session?

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.


Is therapy confidential?

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.


How often should I attend therapy sessions?

Session frequency varies based on individual needs and the therapeutic approach. Initially, weekly sessions are common, but this can decrease as progress is made.


How much does therapy cost?



Do you offer online therapy sessions?

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.


Can therapy help with specific issues like anxiety or depression?

Absolutely. Therapy is effective in addressing a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and relationship difficulties.


How do I choose the right therapist for me?

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.


What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?

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.


Is therapy only for people with mental health disorders?

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.


Can I combine therapy with medication if needed?

Yes, therapy and medication can complement each other. It's important to consult with your prescribing healthcare provider to ensure coordinated care.


What if I don't feel comfortable discussing certain topics?

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.


How can therapy benefit my overall well-being?

Therapy can enhance self-awareness, improve coping skills, and provide tools to navigate challenges, leading to increased emotional resilience and overall well-being.


Is therapy a sign of weakness?

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.
