Therapy Information / FAQs

How many sessions do I need?

The number of (50-55 minute) sessions needed varies, depending on your particular issues, goals of therapy and willingness to examine things and make change. Some clients require 5 or 6 sessions if their issues are very specific. Others may require sessions varying in frequency over a longer period of time. You discuss the most appropriate duration and frequency of sessions during session 1 or 2.

When may I attend sessions?

Morning, afternoon and evening sessions are available, Monday to Friday.

How will information about me be treated?

Any identifying or other therapy information that you disclose to your therapist will be treated with utmost privacy and respect. It is kept confidential and is only disclosed to additional parties (such as your GP, psychiatrist, or a family member), with your prior consent. Usually this is done when it is deemed important and necessary for a better understanding and treatment of your issues. However, psychologists are required to disclose information about you if it is demanded by law or if there is reasonable evidence to believe that someone is at risk of harm. Further, in order to achieve the most effective treatment outcomes for you, the treatment team at the practice will consult one another, and occasionally if required, a senior colleague in relation to your mental health.

What usually happens in treatment?

The initial session(s) involve you describing what is troubling you. Specific information about your developmental, family, work, social and health history is taken, to better understand what is happening for you and why it is happening. We clarify the problems, set goals and expectations about what can be achieved, including a timeframe. Then, we suggest appropriate ways of working on your issues, based on what the issues are, how they’ve developed and what has proven to be effective for others with similar issues or perceived problems (this approach is known as using Evidence Based Treatments).

What are Evidence Based Treatments/Models?

Evidence Based Treatments are those shown to have significant impact in helping people reduce psychological symptoms (e.g. of depression, anxiety, stress) or improve their lives. We use these and other models in an integrative approach, tailored to each client’s needs. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Solution Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic models are used. Each of the therapy models involve you learning new ways of coping and managing difficulties so that you can cope more helpfully, leading to a reduction of psychological symptoms and improvements in satisfaction with life.

How can I benefit most from therapy?

Attending sessions regularly and practising/working on new skills during and between sessions is necessary to better manage your issues and perceived problems. Using a notepad and folder to record, collect and keep all information and handouts from therapy will help you to remember what you are working on, why and how.
