Introduction to Therapy

What to look for in a therapist?

Choosing to engage in therapy or re-engage with a new therapist can be a daunting experience. However, it can be a lifechanging one, with benefits which stay with you both inside and outside of the consultation room.

Speaking to a stranger, about anything and everything that you may have been holding for week’s, months or even years is a scary prospect, but that in a nutshell is what therapy is.Our job is to encourage you to speak and to be heard.

We understand there are lots of us to choose from, so we’ve put together a list of what we believe are the main qualities of a good therapist.
