WHAT ARE THE SESSIONS LIKE?
Is psychotherapy difficult or scary?
In our therapy sessions, you will meet your therapist for 50 minutes each week in a safe, quiet room. Counselling and psychotherapy often involves thinking, feeling, learning new things and sometimes doing new things. You may also do a bit of thinking or "homework" in between sessions. During your sessions, we will talk about and work on the goals in your plan. We will talk about your hopes, expectations and timescale as part of this. We aim to help you feel safe and accepted just as you are so you can do this as safely and comfortably as possible!
You may be worried about talking to someone or feeling upset. We will do our absolute best to help you with this and to support you in your sessions. We see a lot of feelings in this business 😊.
It is good idea for you to meet any therapist once before starting just to see how you feel about it before going further. It is important to be comfortable with your therapist and you may benefit from meeting more than one therapist before you choose.
