Individual psychotherapy can address an enormous range of psychological problems by looking in detail at how a person is viewing and reacting to themselves, to others and to current and past experiences. Within the consistent framework of the sessions, psychotherapists respond flexibly to the evolving needs of an individual.

An initial consultation looks with an open mind at current concerns whilst taking account of an individual’s overall situation and personal experiences. The likely length and frequency of therapy is then discussed together. This initial process also offers the best way for an individual to form their own impression of a particular approach or clinician.
