How do I know if I need to come for counselling?
There are times in our lives when stressful events may feel overwhelming, or when particular thoughts and/or feelings begin to feel too uncomfortable to deal with by yourself. You may have reached a point where you feel the support you may receive from friends and/or family simply isn’t enough anymore; or you feel that there is an emotional issue which is interfering with other areas of your life. Psychotherapy can provide you with some professional help and support during such periods to help you tackle issues which are holding you back from living your life to its fullest potential.
How quickly will I see results?
This depends on a number of things such as the issues you are experiencing, your own motivation to change and the frequency of your appointments.
It is likely that you may begin to feel better quite soon after starting psychotherapy, however it may also be possible that the underlying problem could take some time to work on. For many people, there is a long history behind what has brought them to psychotherapy and it is not realistic to expect a quick fix. Some people may need just a few sessions while for others it may take a considerably longer time.
Usually clients would come for therapy on a weekly basis, however this may depend on your own circumstances and resources. Over time, we may agree on less frequent sessions such as fortnightly or monthly.
