A Problem Shared: Single Session Therapy

One 90 minute session, £250

Why choose Single Session Therapy?

For many reasons, ongoing weekly therapy might not be an option for you right now. Time or financial constraints can be a barrier, or maybe you don’t think that deep exploratory work is right for you at this time or for this issue.

 

However, you would like to speak to an experienced and qualified Clinical Psychologist to work through a specific question, dilemma or problem. And you want to access this in a timely and flexible manner.

 

You could therefore benefit from an online single session of therapy.

What is it?

Single Session Therapy (SST) is just that – one session of therapy. You benefit from the therapeutic skills and expertise of highly experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist but using a focussed, and time limited approach.

 

In SST both you and I approach the session as if it might be the only time we need to meet. This allows us to focus intently on the question or dilemma in a way that that is both meaningful and helpful. There is no need for us to undertake a full assessment and I do not need to ask lots of questions about your history. We simply start the work!

What can this approach help with?

SST can be used for many different problems, difficulties and dilemmas. It is particularly suited to supporting people who are going through life changes and transitions including loss, reproductive loss and trauma, family and parenting issues, difficulties at work, relationships (e.g. divorce) and navigating health issues (e.g. menopause) or a recent diagnosis (e.g. neurodivergence). 

How and why is this a helpful approach?

In SST you get:

  • Timely access to a highly trained and experienced Psychologist

  • To work on the problem straight away

  • To explore at your current resources and strengths

  • Access to a Psychologist who can signpost you to the best information and resources suited to your specific needs

Then what?

At the end of the session, we will have developed some ideas for you to go away and reflect on, to explore and put into action. I will email you a summary of these points along with links to any resources that I believe could be beneficial.

 

And even though we have approached the session as though we may not need to meet again, follow up sessions are available if needed. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as ‘One-At-A-Time-Therapy’.

What should I expect?

  • An initial free 15 minute phone call to clarify if this is the right approach for you.

  • The completion of a pre session questionnaire to clarify your hopes and aims for the session.

  • A single therapy session online (90 minutes) with a highly experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist.

  • A follow up email with a summary, recommendations and links to resources where applicable.

  • The opportunity to book further sessions if needed.

Scaffolding: A block of four sessions  

Four 60 minute sessions, £600 (Payment plans available) 

Why choose Scaffolding?

Then what?

You may already know that a single session is not quite enough for you right now, but similarly ongoing therapy is not suitable either. With this package of sessions, we use a similar approach to  Single Session Therapy, but over an extended period of time. 

 

This can be a cost-effective way to access this support rather than booking individual sessions at a time.

What is it?

In Scaffolding, we agree to focus on a specific area or need over the course of four sessions. Sessions take place over a period of time (e.g. 3 - 6 months) to allow the opportunity for you to put the skills and strategies owe discuss into practice.

Much the same as Single Session Therapy, it is a way of offering you support at the time that you need it. You an read more about SST here.

When working in a focussed way on a specific need or dilemma, four sessions is often enough.

However, if at the end of the block of sessions we feel that more are needed, we can discuss booking more on an ad hoc basis. Alternatively, we may discuss ongoing therapy options with another therapist.

What should I expect?

  • An initial free 15 minute phone call to clarify if this is the right approach for you.

  • The completion of a pre session questionnaire to clarify your hopes and aims for the sessions.

  • Four 60 minute sessions held via Zoom with a highly experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist..

  • The opportunity to book further sessions if needed.

Ongoing therapy 

Weekly 50 minute sessions, £150 - I am currently not accepting new clients for ongoing therapy and do not hold a waiting list.

Why choose therapy?

Weekly therapy is a space to explore a concern at a deeper level over a longer period of time. Things that I tend to help people with are ongoing patterns and struggles with managing distressing emotions, coping with traumatic life events and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), loss and grief.

Having trained in a range of therapies, I strive to provide an intervention that is tailored to meet your specific needs. The main modalities that inform my work are:

 

  • Schema Therapy

  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

  • Compassion Focussed Therapy

How do you work?

Following an initial free telephone consultation, I start with a full assessment of your needs and your hope and goals for therapy. Following this, we make a plan together on the best next steps. 

We may initially contract to meet for a certain number of sessions with a specific goal in mind. It is important that we regularly review how therapy is progressing and whether it is meeting your needs.

Then what?

As we progress towards the end of therapy, we can reduce sessions to fortnightly and then monthly. Many of my clients book 'top up' sessions once they have finished a course of therapy, so that they can maintain the progress they have made.

What should I expect?

  • An initial free 15 minute phone call to clarify if this is the right approach for you.

  • Regular weekly therapy sessions.

  • Regular reviews of progress.

  • Spacing out of sessions as we bring therapy to an end.

  • The opportunity to book follow up sessions following the completion of therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of difficulties or problems can a single session of therapy help with? ​ Single Session Therapy can help with many difficulties. It is particulaly suited to working through life changes and transitions such as loss, divorce, menopause, problems at work and navigating a diagnosis. Rather than being problem specific, it is outcome focussed. In the session(s) we identify a dilemma, question or issue and how you would like this to be different.

How does it work? ​ Single Session Therapy tends to follow three stages: ​ - We start by exploring your areas of concern (clarifying where you are now) - We identify what your goals are moving forward (exploring where you would like to be) - We map out ways in which to move towards these goals (discussing the different routes to your destination) The process starts now – first you work out if this is an approach you would like to try, then you complete the pre session questionnaire which helps you to start clarifying what you want to get out of the session, followed by the session itself and my summary email with actions for you to take. All of my single therapy sessions are online.

What happens after a session? ​ I will send you a short summary that includes action points and links to resources where applicable. You are invited to then: - Reflect on what you have learned from the session. - Digest this learning – for example, exploring the themes discussed in the session and applying to other areas of your life. - Act on this learning and put into practice any suggestions that were made. - Decide after this whether or not it would be helpful to make another appointment.

What if I decide that I need ongoing therapy? ​ I am currently not offering ongoing therapy and do not hold a waiting list. If you know that you want or need ongoing therapy, then this is probably not the right approach for you. If you decide after a single session that you would like to pursue ongoing therapy, I can provide suggestions of the type of therapy or therapist who could be best suited to your needs.

How does this differ from coaching? ​ Whilst there are some overlaps with coaching in this approach, what you benefit from is my clinical training and years of expertise in delivering therapy. I use therapeutic knowledge, strategies and skills in these sessions which differentiate this from coaching.
