Frequently Asked Questions
What is psychodynamic counselling?
Psychodynamic counselling is based on the core principle that the unconscious mind holds onto painful memories and feelings which are difficult for the conscious mind to process. These unconscious feelings can impact our mood and behaviour and may be acted out in our relationships with others. The aim of psychodynamic therapy is to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness and by doing so helping you to understand where some of your deep rooted feelings may stem from.
How do I get started?
If you are interested in arranging an initial session please contact me by telephone or email. At the initial session I will invite you to discuss what brings you to counselling and allow you the space to ask any questions you may have about the counselling process.
If you are happy to continue we will set up a second session and from then on meet once a week, at the same time each week.
How many sessions will I have?
Each session lasts for 50 minutes and takes place weekly. The number of sessions depend on the individual and this is something we can discuss together at your initial appointment.
How much will it cost?
I offer an initial consultation of 75 minutes and my fee for this is £90.
My fee for weekly counselling sessions is £60 for a 50 minute session.
