Frequently Asked Questions About Therapy

What happens in a therapy session?


What brought you in to therapy is usually the starting point.
Part of our initial consultation will be to talk about what your hopes and expectations, reservations or doubts may be about beginning this process.

You might know exactly what it is you want to work on or just have a general idea of needing some support with the challenges of your life at the moment. We can explore options for you together.




How long does a session last?


Each session lasts for 50 minutes.




Is therapy confidential?


Information about you will not be shared to anyone else without your permission (apart from professional supervisors who are bound by the same confidentiality).

The only reason a therapist will consider breaking confidentiality is if they are concerned that you are at serious risk of harm. This possible disclosure should be discussed with you first.




How long will I need to be in therapy?


This is a very individual choice. Therapy does, however, tend to be most effective when attended on a regular basis.
