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 /monthly.

Can I contact you on behalf of another person?
You can, however, the person involved must be aware of the call.  It can be difficult watching a loved one go through a tough time, but making someone go will neither help them nor the situation they are in. Therapy is only beneficial if a person wants to make changes in their lives and enters it of their own free will.

Can I bring my baby with me to my session?
It would be preferable if clients attend their session on their own, however, there can be challenges for people around childcare. Yes, parent can bring baby if they are under 6 months.


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.
