FAQ

What can I expect?

 

Katrina’s approach to therapy is based on the belief that you are the expert on you, and so it is important that the treatment process is collaborative. The first session will involve Katrina getting to know you and gaining an understanding your reasons for coming to therapy. She will then discuss with you your treatment options, drawing from a range of evidenced-based approaches, that best help you to reach your goals and together we make a plan for your treatment.

 

How long do sessions last?

 

Generally, sessions are for 50 minutes to an hour. For some trauma-focused treatment, sessions can run for up to 90 minutes.
