Frequently Asked Questions at a Glance

 

How many sessions do I need?

I usually recommend starting with 6-12 sessions. It naturally takes a little while to build trust and to get a feel for the direction you would like your therapy to take. Many of my clients choose to extend therapy after that and to continue to work with me for 1-2 years.

What is your specialism?

My specialism is early relational trauma, emotional neglect, and narcissistic parenting. I also have in-depth knowledge of narcissism and emotional abuse in romantic relationships. I have clinical expertise in the areas of shame, trauma bonding and C-PTSD.

How do I know it's a good time to start in therapy?

Therapy is a process of reflecting on and working through emotional issues in a supportive setting, so that you can make sense of how your life events have impacted you and find clarity and transformation. In therapy, things unfold at their natural pace week to week, without trying to rush or force anything. It is good to have some stability in your life in order to begin therapeutic work.

On the other hand, if you would like to work on issues around motivation, goal-setting and achievement, coaching might be a better option. 

If you need support in a crisis, please contact your GP or call the Samaritans on 116 123.
