Well, this is one of those ‘how long is a piece of string questions’, but honestly, most people end up in therapy for a number of years.
Yes, therapy can help with addiction, but my understanding is that this is specialised work and you will need to contact a recovery centre or specialist in this area.
If you ever come across a change in financial circumstances, please let me know and we can talk about it.
The therapy I provide is one-to-one and therefore it is inadvisable to have anyone else join in the sessions.
Please let me know, well in time if you are unable to come to your session as arranged. Generally speaking sessions cancelled less than 24 hours before the session time will be charged in full.
The first port of call if you are concerned about someone is to contact their GP, otherwise take that person to A&E and they will be seen by the duty psychiatric nurse. If you think someone is in immediate danger, call 999.
Like everything, let’s talk about it – sometimes it’s just not the right time, or maybe a different kind of therapeutic approach with a different therapist might be helpful.
I have a network of Counselling and Psychotherapy colleagues who I can refer on to.
