New, 30 minute therapy sessions now available!
Traditionally counselling sessions have been 50 minutes in length. However, as more research repeatedly confirms that the relationship, over modality, is the most important thing along with progressive, modern professionals, like myself, joining the industry more options are available. I truly believe that with therapy, one size does not fit all. There are times when 30 minutes sessions may be appropriate and beneficial. I am very happy to support my clients by offering shorter sessions when appropriate.
What session is right for me?
When we are working at emotional depth I would recommend we use the 50 minute format on a weekly basis, however the following may mean 30 minutes is more appropriate or beneficial:
▪️Anyone who may struggle to concentrate for 50 minutes (eg. young children or adults with ADHD)
▪️Clients I have worked with who need a space for accountability or overload non traumatic material to keep them on-course
▪️Clients actively working on their material but have external factors adding short term time pressures in their lives (eg. Uni or work deadlines, childcare issues, short term caring responsibilities)
▪️Clients who need to book another session in the same week but don't want the financial or time burden of 2 full sessions
How often should I be having sessions?
Similarly, therapy has traditionally been a weekly commitment but I am more than happy to work with you to create a structure that works for you. Perhaps the time or financial commitment of weekly sessions is not something that would work for you right now and I am happy to discuss this and offer less frequent sessions if this is appropriate.
Important info to note;
One size does not fit all and as with most things in life we have to try on a few different items until we find the right fit!
If you would like to chat about therapy options I offer a complimentary 20 minute consultation.
