Is counselling right for me?
Counselling does not work for everyone, talking this through with a counsellor would help you to decide whether you would like to try it.
What does a contract mean?
This is a verbal agreement between you and me , Together we will discuss your presenting difficulties and how many sessions may be needed , we can work for 6 weeks ( usually this is a starting point ),or we may choose to work 'open-ended',this means untill you feel the work is complete.
I have regular on-going reviews , normally 6 week intervals , this is a good oppurtunity for you to look at the work you have done and our work together, many clients find this helpful , because they can see how far they have come on their journey .
How do I know what I say is private?
The purpose of confidentiality is to provide you with a safe , secure environment that gives you privacy for your difficulties.
The information that is disclosed in our session together , is strictley confidential , however in order that I abide by Professional body BACP , I have regular supervision , any concerns I have or if you disclose any risk/harms to yourself or others, then I would firstly speak to you and secondly seek advice from my supervisor as to the course of action needed to be taken.I would like to reassure you that, my supervisor is part of the same Professional body as I am and follows the ethical codes and practice of the BACP.
What if I cannot make my appointment?
I ask in order to help with administration, you give 48hr notice of making a cancellation for emergency only.
Cancellation of less than 48 hrs will be chargeable at the full session fee.

Fee; £65.00 per 50min session, usually paid 1 week in advance
