Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What happens during the session?
A: In the first session I take a short time to find out what you want to achieve. As we will be looking at what is not currently working for you in your life, as well as what is working, we do not need to dig unnecessarily into your past. A plan can then be devised to help you achieve your aims and goals. By utilising your inner resources, I can then use guided imagery to help you mentally prepare the changes you want to make.
Q: How do I pay?
A: I accept cheques, cash and internet credit card payments by PayPal.
Q: What if I miss a booked session?
A: All sessions can be cancelled up to 48 hours in advance without payment.
Q: How can I book an appointment?
A: You can call me on (44) 0131 531 4523, Mobile: 07828173569 or click here to e-mail. Filling out the client record form on the downloads page will also be helpful for me in planning the first session.
Q: How many sessions will be required?
A: Although everyone’s circumstances are different, my objective is to take as few sessions as possible. You can fully expect improvements totake place from the first session. A session lasts for one hour, although the first session may last for 75 mins.Additionally, I am happy to do weekend or evening sessions.
Q: What is different about Human Givens Psychotherapy?
A:Human Givens psychotherapy works because it draws on the findings from psychology and neurobiology about how people really function, and, international research studies have also established which counselling techniques are most effective. As a Human Givens Therapist, I do not waste time endlessly asking you to analyse what has happened in your past, or ask you to search for miserable memories, whether real or imagined. Research has shown that this tends to confuse and upset vulnerable people. I offer practical help that deals with mental and emotional difficulties in the here and now.
Q: Do you take NHS referrals or referrals from other professionals?
A:Yes I am happy to take NHS referrals or referrals from other professionals
