That is your decision. Having the time and space to talk confidentially to someone may help you get clarity on your issue/s, whilst providing the opportunity to develop useful coping strategies. The benefits you get out of therapy relate to how much you put into it. Vent what's on your mind, be heard and be taken seriously.
Therapy can help with a wide range of issues, including those relating to:
Affairs and Betrayal
Bereavement and Loss
Depression and Low Mood
Eating Disorders and Food
Identity and Personal Growth
Phobias and Fears
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Self-Esteem and Confidence
Separation and Divorce
Work or School

There is no barrier to who can access therapeutic services. You referral will be welcome regardless of culture, gender, sexual orientation, educational status, or employment group. Dynamic Mind Therapy offers services to adults and young people aged 11 or above. If a young person is under 11 years of age, please get in contact for a free confidential discussion, as Dynamic Mind may still be able to help.
Both- it depends upon individual circumstances and needs. Long-term, open ended therapy proceeds at the client's pace, allowing time and space for the client to gain insight into the root causes of their difficulties. Short-term therapy may be useful for clients who have a particular issue that they want to focus upon.
You can refer yourself, or someone you know if you have their permission. Make an enquiry by using the details listed on the 'Contact' page above. You can then request that a referral form be sent to you.
Dynamic Mind aims to offer an initial consultation with a psychotherapist within 1-2 weeks, once a completed referral form has been received. However, waiting times may vary due to Dynamic Mind's resources, your own availability, and the type of service you seek.
Dynamic Mind can offer weekly sessions, however this can vary depending upon individual requirements. Life can have ups and downs, so the frequency of sessions is something that can be reviewed.
Before your first session it may be helpful to prepare by writing down your reasons for seeking help. You can talk about anything that is on your mind, you may say things that you did not expect to say. A therapist is there to help you explore your feelings, thoughts, memories, regrets, everyday dilemmas, aspirations and dreams.
A therapist's role is not to give you advice, tell you what to do, or judge you in any way. Dynamic Mind will help you come to your own conclusions and empower you to make your own decisions.
Your therapist will be available to you at your scheduled appointment time. In case of emergency you will need to seek other resources. Please contact your GP, the Samaritans (call 116 123 for free), or if necessary Emergency Services.
Dynamic Mind always welcomes comments about services offered. If you do have a complaint, please speak to your therapist to see if they can resolve any issues. Alternatively, you can contact the BACP in confidence (https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/ask-kathleen/).
If you have any other questions, or would like more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
