Frequently Asked Questions

Psychotherapy is a general term that refers to talk therapy, counselling, psychosocial therapy, cognitive and behavioural therapies. It’s an over-arching term that describes psychological evidence-based approaches to therapy that have been based on research into the best way to help those with psychological/ behavioural problems. Psychotherapy allows the Client and therapist to enter a therapeutic alliance, to bring about relief and wellbeing through insight, techniques and understanding of the issues.

The first session will be slightly different to other sessions, as this is a time for both client and therapist to get to know each other, ask questions and make sure that the therapy is correct for you. Sessions after this are focused on understanding the problem by talking and listen to you the expert in your life. Agreeing goals and building a workable approach to wellbeing that may involve techniques and strategies to help you overcome any current issues. When working with younger age groups play and art are often used during the session to bring about an understanding of their inner world and help bring about change and insight.
