How long will therapy take?
If the problem is focused it may be dealt with in a short space
of time – up to about 6 weeks.
If problems are wide-ranging therapy can take longer. The length
of time spent in therapy is controlled by the client, and can be
discussed and reviewed with the therapist regularly.
How long are the sessions, and how frequent?
The normal session occupies 50 minutes. Frequency should be at
least once a week. Some clients choose, and benefit from, more
How much does it cost?
The normal range of fees is currently £45 - £60 per appointment
depending partly on affordability.
How will I know if therapy works for me?
The first appointment is an assessment appointment and will give
a client an opportunity to experience therapy. Often it is a
great relief to be able to start talking. It is important that
clients feel comfortable with the therapist. The decision to
continue and enter into therapy is entirely that of the client.
In rare cases the therapist may advise the client that therapy
is not suitable for them.
Will I know when to finish therapy?
Yes. This will be your decision, in discussion with the
therapist. No-one remains in therapy against their will.
