What happens in the first consultation?

We think about the concerns which bring you or your child and the background to your concerns and we explore possibilities for help.

How long does therapy last?

A session lasts 50 minutes.

How much does a therapy session cost?

What are terms and conditions of the therapy?

Please, see our Fees and Terms to find out terms and conditions.

Do I come every week?

Weekly intervals work best, and sometimes more frequently. A longer gap is hard when difficult feelings come up.

Is it confidential?

Yes, it is completely confidential. Please read the Ethics and Confidentiality page for more details.

What about holidays?

There are regular breaks in therapy. Usually these are two weeks at Christmas, one week at Easter and two weeks in the summer, depending on your therapist’s annual leave. Regularity is important in therapy, so if your holidays fall outside these periods it is helpful to let us know as soon as you can.
