How long does therapy take?
I ask most of my clients to commit for 6 weekly sessions and then have a review to see how it’s working for you. I think therapy is at its best if we have a comfortable enough relationship to have these regular reviews where you can share your views.
Most of my clients end up coming to therapy for a number of months (and even sometimes years!) but it really depends on what’s going on for you. More short-term work can also be highly effective, for example with some of my lawyer clients who like a more coaching-style, practical approach.
Do you provide couples’ therapy?
No, I provide counselling to adult individuals. I can, however, recommend some excellent couples’ therapists.
Can I see you at my law firm for therapy or coaching?
Yes, I run several schemes at law firms whereby I go in regularly for a day or two, seeing a number of lawyers one-by-one in a private space. This is great for clients because it means you get to see a specialist therapist during the course of your working day and within the comfort of your own office, taking away the stress of trying to race out of the door to make it to appointments.
Do you provide couples’ mediation?
I am an experienced mediator but am not practising at the moment. I find that the principles of my mediation experience infuses my work with individuals and can provide the details of excellent mediators if needed.
