Where Are You Based?
Is it just talking?
Talking is just one way of working through our feelings I also work with art materials and objects if you want a more creative approach.
How long are the sessions?
Sessions are 50/60 minutes long.
How Long will I need to come for?
Its hard to predict when you will be ready to end and it is a matter of personal choice. I work on a short term basis usually 6 to 24 sessions or on a more long term basis 1 to 2 years. After our first session it will be clearer how long it could take. Sessions usually take place once a week. Making this regular commitment gives you a better chance of finding out why you are having difficulties.
How Confidential is it?
Counselling is always confidential and this is an important part of the contract between the client and therapist however there are some exceptions which allow me to work responsibly. I regularly see a supervisor and discuss my current work. Supervision is an essential part of the work and it is seen as unethical to work without it.
If I was concerned about a client’s safety or the safety of a third party, it may be necessary to inform the client’s GP, psychiatrist (if applicable) or someone else. I would in all cases endeavour to inform the client beforehand of any action I intended to take.
What happens if I can’t make an appointment?
If you rearrange or cancel with 48 hours notice of your appointment there is no charge however very late cancellations will be charged at £20.
