As a first step, we will usually arrange an initial assessment appointment for you with one of our therapists in order that we can find out a little more about your particular issue and discuss the best form of help for you. These appointments are typically 50-60 minutes in length and initial assessment reports outlining your presenting issue and recommendations are then usually provided to you and, with your permission, the relevant health professionals.
You will meet with your therapist to begin the chosen therapy. Each therapy session is usually 50 minutes in length. The exact number and frequency of sessions will depend on your particular circumstances and varies from person to person. Reviews of your progress will take place regularly to ensure you and your therapist are on track to meet the agreed goals.
As you start to improve, you can agree changes to the frequency of sessions as required. Ultimately, there will be a time when both you and your therapist agree that you no longer need to continue in active therapy. However, it can be reassuring to know that you can always come back to see your therapist for an occasional progress review or if you feel you need a ‘booster’ session after a particular set-back. You can even come back for another short course of therapy to help consolidate a new positive perspective or commitment.
