FAQ

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED COUNSELLING?

Counselling sessions can help you gain clarity with issues you maybe experiencing, change patterns of behaviours, promote growth and positive mental wellbeing and self-development. 
You may seek counselling as a result of a crisis, or you may be encouraged to seek counselling by a family member, friend or health profession.

 WHAT IS THE COUNSELLING PROCESS?

I offer a free 30-minute assessment via phone call, this provides the opportunity for us to discuss your needs and your expectations from counselling. 

If we decide to work together, there will be an initial session, and from then we will meet weekly at an agreed time each week for 50 minute sessions.

I work with both long-term and short-term counselling, with an opportunity to review our work together at regular intervals.

IS COUNSELLING CONFIDENTIAL?

Confidentiality is an important part of building trust, the sessions are confidential. However, there are some exceptions to this, if I feel you're at serious risk of harming yourself or others.

HOW MUCH ARE THE SESSIONS?

My fee is £50 for a 50 minute session, payment is due via card payment, bank transfer or PayPal.

An invoice will be sent out after our session, and must be paid within 7 days.

Cancellation is required at least 24 hours before the session, otherwise the full fee will be charged. 

Missed sessions will also be charged the full fee.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TO CANCEL THE SESSION?

If you are unable to attend a session, then 24 hours notice is required, or you will be charged the full fee for the session.

This will be discussed at initial assessment and explained in the working contract.

WHAT IF I AM IN CRISIS?

I will be available to you at our scheduled sessions, only. If you find yourself at risk or in crisis, you will need to seek other resources.
