How long will I have to wait for an appointment?
Depending on the clinician you are wanting to see we aim to be able to offer an appointment within a week of enquiry. If you are unsure of who would be the most appropriate clinician to see you Dr Christian Buckland, Psychotherapist, would be happy to see you for an initial consultation to look at your situation and to help identify ways of moving forward.At this point he may recommend to continue working with him or may refer you to one of his colleagues. If you are using private medical insurance to fund your treatment you may find that the insurance company will require a referral letter from your GP to be sent before authorising the appointment.
How long will I be in therapy?
The length of treatment depends on the nature and severity of the issue. Many patients require 6 - 10 weekly sessions, whilst others may require longer term treatment. The length of treatment can be discussed prior to the initial appointment by calling us or we can arrange an appointment to meet with one of the psychotherapists to talk through different treatment options.
