Your Questions Answered


Who is the right therapist for me?


It is important to feel comfortable with your therapist. Sometimes it can be helpful to talk with a couple of therapists and discuss their approach. Usually the first meeting lets you know if we can work together.


How many sessions will I need?


For some crises there can be relief in a few sessions with talking it through; identifying the issues and taking some action. Symptoms can be relieved just by feeling understood. For problems and difficulties that have been part of your life for a while it is likely that more work will be needed. It is important for us to identify what kind of work you want to do with me and how long you feel this might take. We can review progress at regular times to see where we are up to. Essentially it's up to you.


How do I book an appointment?


You can ring me on: 07934401031 Or email me at sgridelli@coretime4me.co.uk and I will answer any questions. If you want to meet then we can discuss a mutually convenient appointment time. It is possible to meet during the day or in the evenings.


Where can I find you?


Details will be sent on enquiry via email or by telephone.


What is Person Centred Therapy?


Person Centred Therapy was developed over 6 decades ago by Dr Carl Ransom Rogers as a result of his many years of experience as a clinical psychologist. The essence of Person Centred Counselling is rooted in the humanistic philosophy that each person has the ability to move in the direction of a more fulfilling and satisfying way of being.


The person centred approach takes clients as their own best authorities. The focus of person centred therapy is always on the client’s own feelings and thoughts, not on those of the therapist — and certainly not on diagnosis. The person centred therapist makes every attempt to foster an environment in which clients can encounter themselves and become more aware of their own thoughts, feelings and meanings.


What is NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)?


'Neuro' refers to the mind and how we organise our thinking life. 'Linguistic' is about language, how we use it and how it affect us. 'Programming' is about our sequences or repetitive behaviour and how we act with purpose. Combined, NLP is about connection, for our thoughts, speech and actions and how it connects us to others. Although NLP is well grounded in psychological theory and research, NLP is first and foremost about psychological movement. It provides you with more choices in your mind and body and compliments the Person Centred philosophy in an extra ordinary way.
