Counselling or Therapy/Short-Term or Long-Term
Therapy aims to explore the whole person allowing all aspects of their lives, relationships, internal thoughts, feelings, and experiences both past and present, to be explored.
Long-term therapy is often open-ended, with discussion and opportunities to review and decide if an ending is appropriate. The aim is to help make permanent changes internally as well as externally. For this work to be effective it usually needs a minimum of 6-12 months and often longer.
Short term counselling is usually focussed on one or two specific issues or themes. We would work together to agree the aims for the work. Short-Term counselling is usually between 4 and 12 sessions. Either way, the contract is always open to re-negotiation.
I adhere to the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy – www.bacp.co.uk
Sessions last for 50 minutes and are weekly. I offer evening and daytime sessions to suit you.
I charge a fee of £40-£45 per 50 minute session (depending on venue in Hove, Brighton or Shoreham)
Our first, shorter meeting is £10 and is a chance for us to discuss your goals for counselling, ask questions and see if we can work together.
I reserve a certain number of concessionary sessions and this can be discussed on the telephone or during the initial session. You can arrange the introductory session using the contact form.
