The first session will help the Psychologist and you come to an initial understanding of what the difficulties are, what may help you, what the sessions may entail and how many sessions would be needed. Some people find the process of speaking to someone helpful in itself and only feel they only need a few sessions. Others may need more sessions to follow a more explorative route, or to follow a more structured intervention plan. It entirely depends on you but rest assured we are experienced to provide any of these option to the highest of standards. Regular feedback is also encouraged on your sessions to support this.

If you are a parent or carer and want help with your child please contact us to discuss the initial appointment. Depending on the difficulty, and how you and your therapist come to understand the difficulty and what may be maintaining it, the young person may not need to be directly involved in the session. If they are, your therapist will talk to you more about how this works. It is important that you, as the concerned person of the child are well involved so it is more the likely your therapist will meet with you too.

A UK Clinical Psychologist has completed an undergraduate in Psychology and doctorate in Clinical Psychology, a minimum of six years of study. This qualifies them to practice clinically across the life span using a range of therapeutic modalities. It is a protected title from the Health Care professions council, which means that you can be assured that someone who is a UK registered Clinical Psychologist have been deemed competent to do so. A Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who are trained to prescribe medication for mental health based difficulties, some may be trained to work therapeutically and it is advisable to check that they have had the additional training necessary in order to do this. A counseller and psychotherapist is not a protected title and therefore training varies widely therefore it is important to check their experience and the credibility of their accreditation.
