Counselling or psychotherapy?
Counselling is generally considered a relatively short-term option where a specific problem may be looked at over a period of weeks or a few months. This might be a problem at work, a one-off relationship difficulty or a recent bereavement.
Psychotherapy is a longer-term option, with the intention of making sense of difficulties that seem to repeat themselves in your life. This might include destructive relationship patterns, mood swings and anxious feelings, drug and alcohol misuse or problems with food.
Psychotherapy might involve more than one appointment a week, but this is optional and based on the specific needs of the individual.
Getting Started is Easy
Book an initial, mutual assessment session, lasting 50 minutes at either my Exeter or Lyme Regis practice.
Our first session gives me a chance to see if I believe I am an appropriate person to help and you a chance to determine whether I am someone you feel comfortable enough to work with.
Sessions are generally held at the same time each week and last fifty minutes. My charge is £80 for each session, with cancellations paid for at the same rate.
