Questions Clients Ask

Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions below. If you need us to clarify anything else, feel free to contact us below

Free Consultation

What will happen in the free consultation?

We provide a free consultation to ensure that you get to know us, and we get to know you. During this time, you will learn about our approach to the therapy and we will get a better idea of some of the challenges you have been experiencing. We will discuss how we would plan to support you moving forward and allow time to answer any of your questions.

**Please be advised we can only allow 15 minutes for this phone call as we need to ensure that our other client appointments are on time

How do I know the treatment will work?

There are a lot of variables that dictate how effective psychotherapy will be for you. The process of therapy is to share your thoughts and develop new coping mechanisms for your difficulties. We can’t guarantee that psychotherapy will definitely work for you, however from our experience it can be extremely beneficial and freeing to discuss difficulties with a trained professional

How long does therapy last?

The length of your treatment will much depend on your individual circumstances and needs. At Swift Psychology, we typically review your progress every six sessions and review after that.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is designed to be a short-term treatment lasting between 6 to 20 sessions. However, keep in mind that it is not uncommon for new topics to come up in therapy which can extend this time further.

What type of therapy is offered?

We offer a range of different therapeutic approaches in what is called an ‘integrative approach’. This means that your therapist will use techniques from treatments including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Person Centred Counselling and Mindfulness based Therapy

What are the costs for treatment?

For individual therapy sessions, the fee is £95-£115 per session or £500 for a block of 6 sessions.

At Swift Psychology we offer a comprehensive service including high-quality care, a completely personal approach and ongoing support. This is why we believe our current rate is a fair price for the extensive mental health support that we provide.

Can you diagnose or provide medication?

As Psychotherapists, we cannot provide a formal diagnosis or prescribe medications. The main aim of our sessions is to build a formulation (a picture of what is happening) and support you in developing the skills to overcome these challenges

Are the sessions confidential?

Absolutely! The information that you share with your psychotherapist will be kept between you and them. There are certain exceptions to this, such as if you or others are at risk of immediate harm, however we will fully discuss this with you before starting the therapy process

How long is each session?

Our therapy sessions last 1 ‘therapeutic hour’. This means that you will have 50 minutes working with your psychotherapist. The remaining 10 minutes will allow your clinician to write up their session notes and complete any required admin work
