Ruth offers varying levels of support constructed to meet the needs of most individuals. Some commonly recommended options are described briefly below.
  • Short Term Counselling (6-12 sessions), is a brief intervention constructed to alleviate or resolve single specific problems assessed as being feasible during the initial meeting.
  • Long-term Counselling & Psychotherapy typically may be up to 12 months but with an end point established from the start.
  • Open-ended, as the term suggests, refers to a therapy without a specified end date.
Telephone Counselling is also available in certain circumstances.

For more detailed information about all of these, including frequency and how the first meeting works, please see The Sessions.
