Frequently Asked Questions

What happens in the first session?

The first session we have is the chance for you to assess if I am the right person for you. It also gives me the opportunity to understand what you are looking for and to see if what I can offer will suit you, before making an agreement to work together.

How often are the sessions?

To begin with sessions are usually weekly in order to establish a therapeutic relationship. Regular appointments are suggested for the therapy to be effective. I endeavour to accommodate clients that are perhaps unable to attend at the same day/time each week. Regular reviews are included to ensure that the counselling is meeting your needs.

How long are sessions?

Sessions are 50 minutes and can be booked one at a time or in a block. Some clients will come for a few sessions to look at a specific issue; others will choose to work for a longer period on an open-ended basis.

Where is your practice?

Counselling sessions take place online (video) or on the phone. Click here to find out about how to make the most of online and telephone counselling.

How do I make contact?

Making the decision to take the first step to contact a counsellor can be very daunting. I am very aware of this and understand how hard it can be. Please choose the method of contact with which you are most comfortable.
