Private Therapy in London: FAQs

What is private therapy?

Private therapy at our London centres is available for anyone seeking mental health support who does not, or does not wish to, fall into the low-cost therapy bracket. Typically, those who pay for private therapy can choose the focus, duration and frequency of their sessions. The private therapists registered with TAC have each had years of experience providing counselling support, and also tend to have areas of specialism. Whether you’re looking for support with bereavement, anger management, addiction or any other issue, our experts can provide the confidential support you need.

Why does private therapy cost more?

Private therapy typically costs more due to the high level of service clients receive from the counsellors. Therapists and counsellors with their own private practice will have been required to undergo years of training and will also likely specialise in a specific issue.

At TAC we offer both private therapy and low cost therapy services to ensure we can provide support no matter what your financial situation is.

What are the different types of therapy?

A private therapist will be able to determine the type of therapy that will provide the best results for you, depending on your specific concern. Types of therapy typically covered at TAC may include behavioural therapy, cognitive therapy, humanistic therapy and integrative counselling.

What type of therapy is best for anxiety?

The most widely used therapy type for anxiety disorders is CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). However, you will be able to discuss your specific issues with your private therapist to ensure CBT is right for you and will provide results. There are also other treatment types that therapists may choose to adopt for those who need help understanding why they suffer with anxiety.

What kinds of questions will I be asked during a private therapy session?

When it comes to private therapy, there are several different approaches to questioning that a therapist could take. While it will largely depend on your specific concern and the goals you set for your therapy sessions, typical questions you might come across include:

  • What do you feel is causing the problem?
  • How does your issue / your concern make you feel?
  • What makes you feel more positive?
  • What are you expecting to gain from therapy?
  • How would you generally describe your mood?

Is there anything I should not tell my therapist?

There are very few conversation topics off the table in therapy, and at TAC our private therapists work hard to develop and nurture close relationships with every client. After a few sessions you will likely feel very open about talking through your issues with your therapist, which should make the process even more valuable to you. One thing we do encourage clients to avoid is apologising for their emotions – quite often during therapy, clients will worry they are being too emotional or talking too much. This of course is not the case – exploring and understanding your emotions is exactly what therapy is about!
