Self Investment 

Can you afford not to?

While regular therapy can consume a modest percentage of clients monthly budget in the short term, many confirm that the long-term and far-reaching benefits repay the initial investment many times over. More focused and authentic decision making from the increased connecting to themselves is interestingly often quoted as being priceless.

However, despite independent research (and my clinical experience) consistently confirming good therapy as significantly more effective than other options (inc medication) to heal many mental health disorders for the long-term - choosing to Invest in one’s mental and emotional health remains a difficult decision to justify financially.​ While it’s difficult to conclude that consumer spending can claim the same success for more than a fleeting moment, the subject continues to provoke debate.
