For counselling to be helpful it is important that you feel comfortable with the Counsellor that you go to see. I am happy to chat with you over the phone and answer any questions you may have. I also offer an optional free 20 minute initial session, which would give you an opportunity to meet me and decide whether you feel counselling would be helpful. Please feel free to text, email or phone.
If you decide to go ahead with counselling, sessions are 50 minutes long at a charge of £40. Payment can be made in cash, or by cheque or bank transfer, whichever is most convenient for you. I try to be flexible about re-arranging sessions, but cancellations at less than 24 hours notice of the appointment will be liable for half the full session charge. Sessions also offered to trainee counsellors at a concessionary rate.
Number of sessions
Open & regularly reviewed
As everyone is unique and each problem is different there is no set number of sessions; I believe that counselling should be a partnership between us so we can discuss what you feel might be helpful and book initial sessions, with a view to regularly reviewing how it is going and how much further support is appropriate as we go along.
As part of our first counselling session I will explain my confidentiality policy which will form part of our Counselling Agreement. As a registered member of the BACP I am committed to complying with their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
