What to expect

What will happen at our first session?

How do I decide whether counselling can help me?

Initially, I offer an initial telephone introduction of up to 30-minutes and there is no charge for this. It will give you the opportunity to discuss what has brought you to counselling and some idea of how I work; and for you to ask any questions.

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?

Initial telephone introduction (up to 30 minutes) – free of charge

Counselling Sessions (50 minutes) – £35 (some concessions available)

Payment can be made via bank transfer (in advance of the appointment).

I hope this section has helped answer any questions you may have about how counselling sessions work. If you have any further questions or concerns, then please contact me, I am happy to answer any questions.
