What kinds of therapy do you offer?

I work in an integrative way, which means that although I am trained in a variety of therapeutic models, I tailor my approach to each individual and each particular challenge. The particular methods I tend to use the most are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). To learn more about these styles of working, have a look at my Useful Links page.

Is there a difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling and psychotherapy are very similar, though it is generally accepted that the counselling process tends to be shorter in duration and tends to deal with surface issues while psychotherapy tends to be significantly longer in duration and aims to explore the deeper meaning or root cause of the issue or problem concerned.

How will I know which type of therapy is right for me?

When you meet with me I will be very happy to explore this with you. It's very important to me that together we find an approach which suits your personality, and fits with your particular problem.

How long will I need to be in therapy?

This varies from person to person, and depends on the nature of your problem.  Sometimes only a few sessions are needed, short term work normally consists of six to eight sessions.  If you are unsure how long you will need you can chose to work an open-ended basis and we will regularly review your needs.
