A counselling session is 50 minute
The first session is a chance for us to get to know each other. I will carry out an informal assessment in which I will ask some questions about you, your background and what brings you to counselling. You can ask me any questions and raise any concerns you have. We then can talk about how to proceed together. you may decide counselling is not for you or that we are not necessarily a good fit, you are not committed to continue and off course you can take some time to think about it.
Counselling usually takes place one a week, on the same day and time.
I adhere by the UKCP guidelines which means confidentiality is at the utmost importance. The only time i will consider breaking confidentiality is if i think you or someone else is at risk or i am legally bound to do so. I will always discuss this with you and seek to obtain your consent.
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, this means that if you give 24 hours notice you will not have to pay for the missed session.
Each person is different and the length of the therapy depends on what surfaces in the counselling room. I work both short term and long term. in the initial session we can discuss together how long the work may take. I would normally book an initial 6 week block, after 6 weeks we can review and talk about how to proceed.
