2What happens at the first appointment?
I believe in the importance of a good match between therapist and client, so the first session is designed for us to get to know one another a little, talk about what you would like to focus on during counselling and establish whether we are a good fit.
3Is what I say confidential?
Yes. What is discussed between us will remain confidential and not spoken about outside the counselling setting. However, there are limits to this confidentiality and we will discuss this at our initial meeting.
4How long does a session last?
Each session lasts 50 minutes. The same day and time will be reserved for you each week, unless we agree otherwise.
5How long will counselling take?
I have had clients for whom 10 sessions were enough and some I saw consistently for two years. It really does vary. It is important to remember that depending on the seriousness and nature of the issue, it may take some time, patience and effort. Everyone’s therapeutic journey is unique.
6Is there a cancellation policy?
Sessions that are cancelled, rearranged or missed without at least 48 hours advance notice will incur a charge. Where possible I will try to re-arrange your appointment so that you can be seen within the same week.
7What will it cost and how do I make a payment?
Single session fees for on-going personal therapy vary according to the time of the day and location starting at £75 per 50-minute counselling session. In some cases, a sliding scale is available and can be discussed on an individual basis.
Discounts are also available for block bookings.
Fees are payable by bank transfer or PayPal 24 hours before your session OR at the end of each session by cash. (PayPal payments are subject to a £1.50 transaction charge)
