Could therapy help me?

If you're suffering and struggling with life, then yes

Counselling and psychotherapy are widely recognised to help alleviate a wide variety of mental health issues and problems in living. In order to benefit you don't need a diagnosis or even to understand what the problem is. Many people seek help because they feel that something is wrong but they don't know what it is. In addition, some people seek therapy for personal growth. So, whether you are suffering and struggling with life, or want to develop greater self knowledge and understanding, I can help you achieve your aims.

Do I need short or long-term therapy?

Some issues are better suited to short-term therapy (1-20 sessions) and some to longer-term therapy (20+ sessions). Generally speaking, if you want to focus on one specific issue short-term therapy is appropriate. For issues concerning ingrained personality traits or behavioural patterns or abuse/neglect, long-term therapy will be more effective. We will discuss what length of therapy would suit you at your first session.
