This depends on the issues that you bring to therapy. You and I would talk together about your clinical needs within this context.
People who refer themselves for psychotherapy, counselling and couples’ therapy tend to be adults of all ages and from all walks of life.
In my experience people bring a wide and varied range of problems. For ease of reading the list below reveals just a few of these:

  • Abuse
  • Loss of Meaning
  • Addiction
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Adoption
  • Obsessions
  • Anger Management
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Problems relating to the Older Years
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Parenting Problems
  • Bullying
  • Phobias
  • Depression
  • Physical Abuse
  • Eating Disorders
  • Post Traumatic Stress
  • Employment Difficulties
  • Problems at work
  • Health Issues
  • Redundancy
  • Identity Problems
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Insomnia
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Isolation
  • Sexuality Problems
  • Lack of Confidence
  • Spiritual Concerns
  • Life Stage Problems
  • Stress and Trauma
The duration of therapy can be short or long term and the length is determined largely by the nature of the presenting problem(s) you are bringing. The length of therapy can also be influenced by the psychological defences you may have unconsciously erected in your psyche during the course of development. It is usual for you and I to intermittently review the progress that you are making as the therapeutic journey advances.
