Can I make someone go to therapy?

No. It can be difficult watching a loved one go through a tough time, but making someone go will neither help them or the situation they are in. Therapy is only beneficial  if a person wants to make changes in their lives  and enters it from their own free will.

I would like the support of a friend/family member when I come for my consultation. Is that possible?

Thats no problem. Loved ones are welcome for the initial consultation. 

Do you offer low cost therapy?

I am self employed , so I am not in a position to reduce my fee.

How often do I have to attend?

To get the most out of therapy it is important to attend weekly .When clients are in the stages of preparing to leave  therapy we may see each other every second week until they finish. Id like to stress,that clients are more than welcome to return to therapy at any stage in the future.

Is there a waiting list?

There can be and if I  have no availability here is some information that you may find helpful.

  •  I can add you to a waiting list and contact you after two weeks to update you on your waiting status and if there is still no availability  I can offer you contact details of other supports and you may want to leave the waiting list..

  • If you would prefer to remain on the list I will contact you as soon as a space becomes available.I will update you on your waiting status every two weeks.
