Single Session Therapy

A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life

Do you have a problem you want to address

One session - 90 minutes - £150 - email me for a booking

Do you feel stuck and want to find a way out. Single session therapy may be your answer. In this session, we won’t see the solutions to all your issues, but we can find a place of movement to create a sense of flow

Some of the reasons people seek single session therapy

Feeling stuck and need help to get unstuck

Finding life challenging to manage

Looking to get more out of life

You want therapy but intermittently 

Self-development issues

You want to try treatment before committing 

It would help if you made a difficult decision

Experiencing anxiety, guilt, shame anger

Relationship issues

How it works

After you have booked your session, you will receive a pre-session form to fill in, which gives me an indication of what you are looking for and how I can best help. During the session, we will agree on what we can realistically achieve and if you have multiple issues we will identify one and focus on that.

One session may be enough, but more are available if we feel it helpful. We may agree to book a follow-up session.

View each session as a whole, potentially complete in itself.

Expect change

How does it work?

Single Session Therapy

One of the benefits of single session therapy can be identifying what is getting in your way of living the life you want. It can help you identify unhelpful patterns. When it comes to our own lives, we have a hard time seeing patterns that get in our way. We’re too close to our problems,  

Single-session therapy adopts a one-session-at-a-time approach to treatment. Each treatment session is considered one self-contained therapy session with a beginning, middle, and end. 

Single session therapy can be a springboard for implementing changes or coming up with solutions so you can move forward and be ready to face your current challenges right now.

Research shows that simply attending one session can sometimes be enough to kick-start the process of making changes to your life. So if you are someone who has a specific problem or situation that is causing you stress but can’t quite figure out how to navigate it or move forward, my single session option may be best for you.

How is it different

In ongoing therapy, there is usually a reasonably comprehensive assessment in the first session that may go into the second one depending on the issues. The assumption is that the work will evolve and deepen your understanding of how you are in the world concerning yourself and others.

In single-session therapy, we do not carry out a full assessment. Instead, we are looking for how best to help you in a one-off capacity involving a pre-session questionnaire, identifying your strengths, and finding the best way forward. 

Make a booking

You can either book in through the online booking system - single session, or you can email me and headline single session therapy.

What do you need to bring?

A willingness to accept challenge

A willingness to allow others to offer a different view

Ability to accept choice and take responsibility

An understanding you have resources in your life

Accept that change can happen quickly
