Counselling and Psychotherapy
WHAT IS IT
Counselling and psychotherapy are talking therapies that can help you if you are feeling particularly stuck within your thoughts and emotions, or feel unsure or lost in life, by providing a safe space for you to discuss any thoughts, feelings and concerns you may have, day to day.
The terms counselling and psychotherapy can be used interchangeably but some believe that counselling refers to short term work on a specific issue whilst psychotherapy involves working more long term on a deeper issue.
You can find out about other therapists working locally to you on the website Counselling Directory.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT E9 THERAPY
We offer open ended therapy meaning that you are not limited in the number of sessions you can have. You will work with your therapist to agree on what you'd like to work on and discuss the number of sessions required. There will be regular reviews about how your therapy is progressing and whether you would like to extend your series of sessions or feel ready to end them.
Sessions take place in a confidential setting, a private neutral room for just you and the therapist to talk as comfortably and easily as possible for you about difficult issues.
Overall, therapy can help you express your feelings and gain a deeper insight and understanding of yourself.
It will not give you specific advice or try to solve your problems for you but it can help you to understand yourself better and make any necessary decisions and changes to your life.
Sessions take place at the same time on the same day once a week. Sessions will need to be paid for in advance and any missed sessions, with less than a week’s notice, must be paid for.
Each session costs £60.
All our therapists are fully qualified and members of professional bodies, they are not trainees or volunteers. They all practice within the guidelines and abide by the codes of their professional bodies. They have been background checked and attend regular supervision as part of their work.
