We’re not sure what to expect?

If you've never been to see a therapist before, you may be worried about what to expect. This is quite usual, but people often feel greatly relieved that they have come along for sessions. This is your first step in making positive changes for your relationship.

How many sessions will we need?

It’s hard to say how many sessions you’ll need until we meet and discuss what is troubling you. As a general guideline, we’ll meet for 6 sessions, once per week (or fortnight if you prefer).  After this we’ll meet less often, usually once per month for further sessions if you require 

Will we have homework in between sessions?

Yes, I may give you worksheets to fill out, or suggest exercises for you to practice between sessions. Often couples find this very useful. It is an integral part of you working on your relationship.

Do you offer extra resources?

The Membership

Yes, as part of your therapy, you have free Client Level Membership to the website.Here you can login and access resources which accompany our therapeutic work, as well as extra materials for your general interest.

These include worksheets, videos, audios, suggested reading materials. You will also have access to Discount Codes which enable you to purchase the paid courses - free of charge.

People very often find these additional resources an invaluable help. They can be an integral part of overcoming what is troubling you and learning new skills for the happier, and more confident, future you.

Are you specifically qualified in Couples Therapy?

Yes, Couples Therapy is a special type of therapy, so it’s important that you get help from someone fully qualified in this field.

I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Couples Counselling and am a member of the CCN, the Couples Counselling Network

How long are the sessions?

Couples Sessions are for 1 hour and 10-15 minutes. 

This is longer than standard couples sessions which are 50-60 minutes – in my experience, 70 minutes works well for couples. It is an optimum length of time for you, because it allows plenty of time to work on your needs, without becoming too overwhelming.

How much will our sessions cost?

How often will we have the sessions?

This is very much dependent on what is troubling you, your availability and your budget.

If you have a pressing issue, you may like to start with sessions once or twice per week, then attend less frequently.
Some clients prefer to attend fortnightly, monthly or even every six weeks. We can discuss this and I can help you decide which will be the best option for you.

Why would we want to book a block of sessions?

Apart from the discount, booking a block of sessions can be helpful for your progress. It gives you a sense of continuity, and feeling focused on exploring your issues as an ongoing process.

However, if you prefer to book your sessions one by one, that is perfectly fine too.
