Do many people attend psychotherapy? Yes. Attending psychotherapy or counselling sessions is no longer viewed as a sign of mental illness but rather the normal way of coping with modern life issues.

I am feeling anxious about attending my first session, am I the only one? You are not alone. The majority of people feel apprehensive or anxious about attending the first session but as they settle they realize they are getting the right support and begin to feel comfortable.

What type of Counselling is the best for me? There are various therapeutic approaches available and they all share one important aspect, which is the development of a good therapeutic alliance. This means that you need to feel comfortable with your therapist and that is the right type of counselling you need.

How many sessions will I need? The length of sessions vary from person to person. The therapist have ethical responsibility to keep the client for no longer than necessary.

Can I terminate therapy at any point? Yes, you can.

How will it help me? As you know we are all unique and for everyone something different works. For instance, clients who like structure and organisation may welcome simple cognitive behavioural methods to relieve their symptoms. On the other hand, other clients may feel confused and may want to self-explore deeper levels of themselves in order to understand the causes of what makes them feel, think and behave the way they do and here exploration, advice and clarifications may be helpful. Clients are also offered information based on research result findings that may also assist when making sense out of ones experiences. In general, this process leads to an increase in self-awareness, better self-control and self-management, some degree of improvement or complete recovery and growth of confidence and motivation.
