Free telephone consultation
I appreciate that thinking about starting therapy and finding the right therapist for you or your loved one can feel like a daunting task.
Before arranging an online assessment I’m happy to offer a free 15 min telephone consultation to discuss briefly the issue you are seeking help for and answer any questions you may have.
Before commencing therapy you will need to have an assessment. Assessments are carried out via video call and are usually completed in a 60 min session. On some occasions people may require more than one assessment session.
Areas explored in the assessment include:
- The area you want to work on in therapy.
- When the problem started.
- Factors which you feel may have triggered or contributed to the problem.
- Any previous mental health problems.
- Any past treatment you have had.
- Your goals for treatment.
At the end of the assessment I will be able to give you recommendations for treatment or plan going forward.
Online Individual Therapy
Once you have had an assessment and therapy has been deemed suitable, we will be able to commence regular therapy sessions.
I’m currently conducting all therapy sessions online via Zoom. Online therapy has been shown to be just as effective as traditional face to face therapy, it can be carried out in the comfort of your own home and fit in around busy work and home schedules.
Therapy sessions last around 50 min, each session will generally be weekly and at the same time. The number of sessions needed depends on the difficulties you are facing, I can give you an estimate of how many sessions you might need after an initial assessment. Most people have between 5-20 weekly sessions.
I have been supervising trainee and qualified therapists since 2014. I’m able to provide general CBT supervision and specialist supervision in CBT-E or CBT-ED.
