The types of therapy and the service I offer is varied and needs based. Working independently means that you or your child have more
control of the theraputic process. Input can be as long or short as you
A space to think and reflect on the issues affecting you and your child away from daily demands and stressors.
Theraputic interventions that involve weekly or
fortnightly meetings. These run on average for twelve sessions, but can require more (or less) depending on need, motivation, readiness for change, and
upon the specific psychological presentation of the person.
Shorter sets of sessions if you or your child
feel the need to explore a particular theme in more detail in a safe and protected
environment. For example a specific social difficulty or adjustment to changes.
A longer term theraputic relationship where you or your your child see me as and when difficulties arise.
I do not have a 'cut off' or criteria except in cases of risk where I may recommend a team approach instead.
While I am qualified and experienced in a
variety of assessments I do not offer them. In my experience a private
assessment will not always be useful in moving things on in the way you
hope. My belief is that it would waste your time and money which could
be better spent thinking with me about how to move forward with the
difficulties in hand.
