So how does this work?
Once you have decided that you want to have counselling, send me your name, number and a brief message on the CONTACT US page.
Book an Assessment
Once we have agreed a time and a date I will book an assessment on the phone.
I offer a 20 minutes free assessment. I will take a brief history and you can ask any questions that you want to.
Assessment will help you to make a decision if you want to work with me or not. If you decide after the assessment that we can work together, we will book our further sessions.
Is It confidential?
Yes, assessment and all further sessions are confidential. However there are some exceptions; for eg court orders, disclosure of harm to self and others.
All counsellors are required to have regular supervision, where cases are discussed for reasons of ethics and safe practise. My supervisor is bound by the same commitment to confidentiality as I am.
How long is the counselling session? How often should I attend?
I offer 50 minutes counselling sessions. It is recommend that you commit to weekly sessions but it's completely up to you. People choose to work long term or short term. It's your choice.
