You may be seeking therapy if you are experiencing difficult feelings in life in general, or around a particular issue or event. Our therapists can offer therapy on a short, long or open-ended basis, depending on your needs.
Most of our therapists are generalists, which means they can help with a range of issues. However, many also have trainings and experience delivering specialist therapy services, such as therapy for children, couples, or families, or using creative or mindfulness-based approaches in sessions.
How to choose a therapist
Finding the right therapist is daunting and it can be hard to know where to start. Research shows you are more likely to benefit from therapy when you have a good relationship with your therapist. Therefore it is important you choose a therapist who you feel comfortable with and who you feel you can trust.
Have a look through the therapist directory and see who you are drawn towards. Contact two or three. Some therapists offer an initial phone conversation whilst others will invite you to email them and then they will call you; you’re exploring to see who might be a good fit for you before booking a session. Have a look at our FAQs if you have other questions about the initial therapy session.
