Frequently Asked Questions
How long is a counselling session?
Counselling sessions are for one hour.
When can I come for counselling?
Appointments are available mainly during the daytime with some limited evening/weekend appointments available.
We will try to keep your sessions to the same day and time to provide you with consistency and so you know you have that time dedicated to you.
How often do I need to come for counselling?
I usually recommend weekly sessions to start with and counselling can be short or long-term depending on your own individual need.
We will have regular reviews to see how the counselling is progressing and what you feel you need so you are in control of how long you would like the counselling to continue.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
Please give as much notice as possible if you need to cancel and reschedule an appointment. If appointments are cancelled giving less than 24 hours-notice a fee of £20.00 will be payable.
How will counselling benefit me?
Counselling is a talking therapeutic therapy. I provide a place where you can come and talk to a qualified counsellor about whatever is bothering you or things you may be struggling with in a safe non-judgemental environment.
It can be helpful to talk to somebody in confidence away from family and friends.
Counselling can help you to make sense of things, become more self-aware and have a greater understanding of yourself and others.
It can help you to see other choices and options for yourself and how you live in the world, building your self-confidence and feeling more in control in your life.
