Therapy located in central Cambridge, UK

Psychotherapy sessions last for 50 minutes and are regular weekly appointments. For some people only a few sessions can be enough to give them the insight and confidence they need to go on with their lives. Other people need longer to tell their story and feel understood.

If you have felt different and alone all your life, it could take some time before you feel comfortable and at home in the world. In existential therapy you will be able to talk about what you find most difficult in life. You will also be encouraged to explore what is difficult in the therapy itself, as this is likely to reflect the issues that are present in your wider world.

Although you may not be given 'homework' to do between sessions, taking some time to reflect on what has been talked about will always be beneficial, and if you choose to write a diary while you are in therapy this may help you with new insights.

What do I need to do?
All you need to do is make a commitment to yourself that you are going to address what's not working in your life. You need to attend your sessions regularly, whether you are coming for short term or longer term therapy.

Don't worry about not knowing what to say in the sessions. It's okay to simply say that you don't know what to talk about, or to just sit in silence for a while. The sessions are for you. It's your time and space. There's no right or wrong thing to say.

Some people are worried about what they may feel during or after the sessions. They may try and stop themselves crying because they feel it's embarrassing, or they are concerned they will burden me. Other people are worried they'll get in touch with really angry feelings. And some people fear that they'll bring up things that they've been trying to hide or ignore, and end up feeling more depressed than before. 

It's natural to have these or other concerns about psychotherapy, and I'm not going to be surprised or upset if you mention these in your sessions. In fact, you are likely to find it very valuable to be able to openly discuss your fears in a safe place, and together we will find a way to get through these obstacles so that you can get all the help you need. 

Where are you located?
I work in a quiet and discrete therapy room in central Cambridge. When we arrange a first session we can discuss the exact location to check it is convenient for you.

How much does it cost?
The fees start from £60 per session. It is usual to pay at the end of each session in cash, or in advance by BACS. Some people like to pay for a few sessions in advance.
