Everything you need to know

How long is a therapy session?

Sessions are typically 50 minutes duration. Occasionally, an extended 80-minute session may be recommended (e.g., trauma-focussed work).

How many sessions will I need?

This depends on the issue bringing you to therapy. We usually recommend a minimum of six sessions for you to experience progress, but we’ll be able to provide you a better idea of what to expect following your initial session.

How frequently should I attend?

Regular attendance is important to ensure you fully benefit. Weekly to fortnightly sessions are usually recommended depending on your needs and reasons for attending. Whenever possible, the same time will be reserved for you at each internal (e.g., weekly, fortnightly, monthly).

What should I expect in the first session?

The aim of the initial session is for clients and therapists to get to know each other and to learn in more depth, what you hope to gain from therapy. It will also involve getting an understanding of your personal history and current life situation in order to help you develop a clear plan of treatment.

What are your hours?

Appointments vary according to therapists but are usually available Mondays through Saturdays from 8am – 7pm. After hours appointments are limited.

Do you only offer online therapy sessions?

BOTH Face-to-face AND Telehealth appointments are currently available, however this varies according to therapists and/or locations.

Is online therapy as effective as face-to-face therapy?

Yes! Research has shown that therapy delivered online is comparable to in person therapy. In fact, it has added advantages such as being able to access specialists outside your geographical location, saves you time and money on travel to/from appointments and you can access it from the safety and comfort of your own home, office or even a (parked!) car – anywhere private and safe.

Do you prescribe medication?

Psychologists do not. Please speak to your GP or a psychiatrist for any medication related queries.
