Counselling/Psychotherapy involves listening and talking, and understanding the relationship between the people involved. Each therapy session offers an opportunity to have the space to tell your story, and be listened to. The important part of this is in establishing a healing relationship with your therapist. Therapy is an active process, like a journey of self exploration. The therapist is able to offer guidance, though the ultimate responsibility for changing is with you.
Sessions are usually held weekly and each session lasts for fifty minutes. Further information can be obtained from the NHS Conditions website or The British Association of Psychotherapists. Alternatively you can contact Ruth or Cheryl who will be happy to answer your questions.
