Prior to sessions starting, a free, fifteen minute telephone conversation is required which will allow us to confirm whether the service will be appropriate for you and collect your personal details (if you wish to proceed with therapy). This is also an opportunity to answer any questions you might have and discuss the fees for sessions (if you are not covered by health insurance).
There are different types of talking therapies. They are all a joint effort between you and the psychologist. To bring about change you will have to take a very active role yourself. Some therapies are concerned with how our thinking affects the way we feel or behave, some focus on particular behaviours which are seen as a problem, some look at the influence that others around us have upon ourselves, and others look a combination of these influences.
After the treatment has finished, we would be most grateful if you could give us your feedback by completing this form [link].
