Can I book just one session?

Booking a single session

When you book an initial session via Harley Therapy, there is no obligation to return for further sessions. If you have a follow-up session booked, you can cancel this at any time by logging into your Client Dashboard.

If your therapist is not a good fit for you, or if you simply do not 'click' with each other, we would offer to cover the cost of an initial session with a different therapist under our guarantee for clients. 

It is however important to note that therapy is an ongoing process rather than a quick fix. One session rarely achieves significant, lasting results and it is important to keep this in mind when looking to meet with a therapist. 

All of the approaches offered by our therapists are either short or long-term, with short-term therapies usually lasting for a minimum of 6-12 sessions depending on the type of therapy. We have more information about this here.

We do not offer 'Single Session Therapy' via the Harley Therapy Platform.

Usually, your first session will be focused on discussing the issues you would like to work on, any relevant background history, and how the therapist could help you, rather than actual therapy taking place. You may feel some relief from opening up about the issues that you are struggling with, but this can be quite short-lived, and although everyone's experience is unique, it is unlikely you will see significant lasting improvements or changes by attending just one session alone. 

If you are concerned about the ongoing financial commitment, it would usually be more beneficial to spend some time finding a therapist you can afford to meet with regularly, rather than spending money on one session with a more expensive therapist that you are unlikely to continue meeting with.

We also have an article here outlining low-cost and free therapy options in the UK.
