Frequently asked questions

To find a therapist that is best suited to you we encourage you to filter the therapists by the issues you'd like to focus on. You can then click on the therapist’s profile to read a little bit more about their methods and the services they provide. Should you feel this therapist is best suited to you, we recommend booking a 15-minute free consultation. This will help you gain a deeper understanding of how they can help you.
Our therapists are all highly qualified and experienced. They are members of a professional membership body, meaning they abide by a strict code of ethics. They have a minimum of 3 years training and a further 3 years clinical experience.

With a wide range of different types of therapy on offer, it can be hard to determine which is best suited to you. Our therapists use a mix of therapy styles and adapt their services to your needs. You can read more on the different types of therapy here.

We currently offer 5 different therapy services:

  • Online therapy - this is a video call with your therapist from a location that is best suited to you. This is our most popular type of therapy.
  • Telephone therapy is sometimes preferred when it is difficult for the client to get to sessions due to travel, family, or work commitments.
  • Face to face therapy (open-ended) is a more in-depth approach that gives you the opportunity to explore different aspects of your life over a greater time span.
  • Face to face therapy (time-limited) is a more focused, goal-orientated approach in which specific issues can be addressed over a maximum of 12 sessions.
  • Short session - for those who have a limited amount of time available we offer 30-minute sessions, whichever type of therapy you choose.

We have something for everyone. Currently, we offer:

  • 1:1 individual sessions
  • Couples therapy
  • Adolescents
  • Family therapy
  • NHS employees
  • Veterans
Most therapy sessions take place weekly. However, this can be discussed directly with your therapist during your initial assessment so that you can plan the timing of sessions to suit you. We always encourage a minimum of 6 sessions as this is where you will really start to see the benefits and learn more about yourself.
All payments are made directly through your chosen therapist's booking page. Once you have selected the date and time that suits you, the next step is payment. This process is fairly straightforward and only requires you to enter your card details. You will receive confirmation once the payment is successful.

Making the decision to start therapy can sometimes be nerve-wracking There are many things that you might be concerned about, but the professionalism of our therapists shouldn’t be one of them.

Safeguarding our clients is a top priority which is why all our therapists adhere to the ethics code of professional bodies. Our therapists have a minimum of 3 years experience working with clients (post qualification) and are all insured. They have regular supervision to ensure they are providing the best quality service and care for our clients.
