Frequently Asked Questions


What happens in a session?

Your first session will be an initial assessment session and here we will have 70 minutes to discuss the current difficulties you are experiencing and to discuss your therapeutic needs.

We will set therapeutic goals and this will enable me to come up with a bespoke therapy plan designed to help you reach those goals. The therapy plan will take into account your specific difficulties and needs and will be led by evidenced based CBT strategies.

This treatment plan will general be discussed in following sessions. Sometimes depending upon the complexity of the problem it can take a few sessions to develop.

All ongoing face-to-face sessions last approximately 50 minutes, Skype sessions last I hour.  In these sessions we will focus on strategies and intervention to achieve your therapy goals and discuss anything else that might have come up for you that you feel it of benefit to talk about.

How many sessions will I need?

It is very difficult to predict this for each individual until we are in session. It depends upon multiple factors including a person’s specific therapy goals, how they get on with in-between session work and how a person’s symptoms are responding to treatment. This question we can discuss in the first few sessions and we can get an estimate based on the therapy goals and plan in place.

In very context some of the more straight forward anxiety disorders can be significantly improved in approximately 8-12 sessions.  CBT for Chronic Health Management can take a lot longer and is very much dependent upon the person’s condition and what the person is trying to achieve with management or recovery.

Will my sessions be confidential?

Your sessions will be completely confidential as we as therapists are bound to similar confidentiality rights as GP’s.  We completely understand that what we discuss in the therapy room can be very distressing and completely and utterly private.

We do everything to ensure that confidentiality is kept sacred down to locking away of confidential notes. Confidentiality is fully discussed before we start therapy in session 1.

 The initial assessment session of 70 minutes will be £95.
