The 15 minute free consultation allows you to find out more information about our therapy approach  and for us to understand your difficulties and challenges in some further detail. During this time, you may be asked some questions about what you have been experiencing and discuss the likely steps we would take to support you best. Following this, we can set up a suitable date and time for your initial appointment

 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy involves developing strategies and identifying negative behavioural and thinking patterns that are impacting your life. CBT has a greater emphasis on specific techniques whereas counselling places more emphasis on you taking the lead on exploring topics to help you move forwards.

 

Unfortunately, we do not provide Crisis or Inpatient services. Therefore if you require immediate support, we would strongly advise to contact your GP or to call 999 if there is the threat of immediate risk

 

Absolutely. We welcome contact from anyone who feels that they require support. It can sometimes however be helpful to have a referral from a GP or other healthcare professional. This may  provide more information about your difficulties which will support the ongoing process.

 

During your initial consultation we will gain some further information about you and discuss the approaches that may best suit you. Our therapists are trained in Person-Centered Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance & Committment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E).

 

Finding the right therapist is sometimes more important than the techniques themselves. If you feel comfortable with a therapist you are more likely to make progress throughout your sessions. That is why we provide the free consultation, in order for you gauge whether you think we are best equipped to support you.
