Therapy involves talking about the way you feel, think and act. This different to talking to friend because it is structured, and the psychologist has specialised knowledge of psychological research, theory and approaches to treating problems. This will guide the way they listen to you, challenge you and support you.
Therapy sessions are usually up to one hour in length, on a regular basis such as weekly or fortnightly. You may meet with the psychologist for only a short time or for a number of months. You will be expected to practice what is learned between each session if you wish to make lasting changes.

Supervision is defined as a scheduled time to meet with a respected professional colleague for the purpose of conducting a self-reflective review of practice, to discuss professional issues and to receive feedback on all elements of practice, with the objectives of ensuring quality of service, improving practice and managing stress.
Supervision sessions are typically 50-60 minutes long and held at Mindme premises.
