Will I need weeks, months or years of therapy?
The lengths of the therapy you require depends on the challenges you are facing. Typically, childhood trauma requires longer term work than adult trauma – especially when you haven’t been fortunate enough to have a ‘good enough’ start in your life.
While there is no way of accurately predicting lengths of therapy at the outset, Ellen might be able to give you a rough ‘guesstimate’ of sessions required, based on your taster session and the subsequent formulation-building / assessment phase of therapy.
How do I contact Ellen?
The easiest way to contact Ellen is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can call her on 07951570858 and leave a message on her answerphone.
