Am I suitable for therapy?

Anyone is a good candidate for therapy, whether it be in relation to mild anxiety occurring in daily life, to substantial negative impacts of traumatic life events. 

Is it important to have therapy? 

Therapy is an effective way to identify the root causes of issues which are negatively affecting your life and to ultimately alleviate the symptoms.

When do I notice results?

Every person's progress in therapy differs. It may the case that where one person notices a difference after 3 sessions, another person may not notice such results until the course of treatment has ended. This is completely normal due to individual differences and should not be disheartening or impact your personal progress.

How many therapy sessions do I need?

At AG Confidential Therapy we typically suggest a course of 6-12 sessions in order to notice an improvement in your condition, however, where further sessions are required this will be brought to light and discussed further with your practitioner.  

What is anxiety?

The term anxiety refers to a number of psychological disorders that cause feelings of nervousness, panic, uneasiness and fear that vary in intensity, from mild to severe. Anxiety affects the way in which a person thinks and feels which can translate into physical symptoms. The presence of anxiety in a person's daily life can be extremely distressing and therefore it is important to seek treatment if you suffer from anxiety.

What are panic attacks?

The majority of people suffering from panic attack experience a number of the following symptoms:
  • Racing heart
  • Feeling of chills or sweatiness
  • Feelings of terror, dread and imminent death
  • Feeling dizzy, sick or weak
  • Chest pains and difficulties breathing
  • Feeling trapped or without control

How do you treat panic attacks? 

At AG Confidential Therapy we use a combined approach to help treat panic attacks. Primarily, we provide you with psycho-education so you understand the nature and characteristics of panic attacks. Following on from this, you work alongside your practitioner to identify the potential root causes of the attacks and you will consequently be administered with coping mechanisms to minimise the intensity and frequency of their occurrence.

What are the symptoms for IBS?

The majority of people suffering from IBS experience a number of the following symptoms:

  • Bloating and abdominal cramps 
  • Change in bowel habits- such as constipation or diarrhoea or sometimes both
  • Excessive flatulence
  • Passing mucus when excreting
  •  Feeling an urgent need to go to the toilet

If you experience a number of the following symptoms for longer than 6 months it is important to see your GP who will be able to administer a diagnosis.

Can I continue with therapy even if my treatment is finished?

Throughout the course of your treatment, you will discuss your progress with your practitioner. If you feel that you are not in a place that you are satisfied with following your course of treatment, you can discuss any continuation of treatment with your practitioner. At AG Confidential Therapy, we aim to complete treatment within 6-12 sessions, however, we understand that due to individual differences, everyone progresses at their own pace. Your practitioner will consider this and will work with you to administer a treatment plan accordingly.
