How long does therapy take?
Psychotherapy is usually a mid to long term process, lasting months and sometimes years. If you have a specific issue you want to address, a set number of sessions can be agreed initially. Whatever your needs, we would review the work during the 6th session to establish whether it was right for you and whether I felt I was the right person for you to work with.
What is the difference between psychotherapy and counselling?
It takes longer to train as a psychotherapist than as a counsellor, and psychotherapy tends to be more in-depth than counselling. However, although there are clear differences in the training, some people use the terms 'counselling' and 'psychotherapy' interchangeably, and there is no absolute agreement about the definitions. It is a confusing area, and questions about training, experience and how someone works can be asked in the introductory session.
