Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a general list of some of the most common questions I get asked regularly from clients. And of course, please feel free to get in touch with me with any other questions you may have about any of my services.
Do you offer remote counselling e.g. via Zoom?
Yes. For those that can’t get to me in person for a Face-to-Face session and wish to work with me due to distance or indeed any other issues, I offer Therapy sessions in other formats including Zoom, Teams, Skype, WhatsApp, and also by Phone. With Covid, these ways of accessing therapy have made it more accessible and have proved very successful.
What is counselling?
Counselling focuses on a particular problem or difficulty that the client is having and is usually short term. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be sent for counselling.
What is Psychotherapy?
Also known as the ‘talking cure’, psychotherapy is the practice of tending to or healing the soul, body, and mind. It is not about giving instruction or advice.Psychotherapy encompasses past, present and future, and acknowledges various forms of consciousness. There are many types of approaches and school of thought in psychotherapy; some are better suited for more immediate, briefer therapy issues, while others are more appropriate for deeper, longer-term therapy.

The more common issues include:
- Anxiety & panic attacks
