What will happen at our first session?
How do I decide whether counselling can help me?
Initially, I offer an introductory session (there is no charge for this session). At this session I will explain counselling in more detail, talk about confidentiality and the limits to confidentiality. It will give you the opportunity to discuss what has brought you to counselling and some idea of how I work; and also for you us both to assess whether I am the right counsellor for you and whether I am I am able to offer you what you are looking for within my counselling practice.
How many sessions will I attend?
Every client and every situation is different, regards the number of sessions required. Some clients may feel they only need a few sessions, others will feel they need more, how many sessions you have is your decision. I usually initially suggest six sessions, and at this point we can review how the counselling is helping you and if you would like further sessions.
What about confidentiality?
Confidentiality is central to counselling, so anything we discuss will be confidential, however there are some ethical and legal limitations to this, which I will explain when we meet for the introductory session.
How much do you charge?
Introductory Session – Free of charge
Counselling Sessions (50 minutes) – £40
Payment can be made via bank transfer (in advance of the appointment).
