Frequently Asked Questions

I am sure you are feeling nervous about starting therapy. I hope this page answers some of your questions. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me.

The first session

The first session is about getting to know you and what brought you to counselling. We will look at what you want to achieve in your sessions. I will also complete an assessment form at this session.

What can I expect from a counselling session?

Counselling is a safe space for you to say anything you wish without judgement. I will listen, ask questions, and allow time for your own self exploration. We can work through any challenges you are facing at your own pace. I will help you to believe and trust yourself.

How long is a session and how many sessions do I need?

Each counselling session lasts for an hour. The number of sessions is different for each individual and dependant on what you are hoping to gain from the process. I suggest starting with 6 sessions and then we can review how you are getting along.

What about confidentiality?

What you talk to me about in sessions is confidential. There are ethical exceptions to this which I will discuss with you in our first session. If I feel you need extra support, I will discuss this with you in the session.

Do you keep notes?

Yes, I keep notes about each session and these are kept in a secure drive on my computer. This means if I lose my computer no-one would be able to access your data.

What is the cost of a session?

A counselling session costs £50 and is payable 48 hours prior to your session. I will send you a link to pay via my SumUp account. Hypnotherapy sessions cost £60 also payable in advance.

Do you offer any concessions?

I offer 2 sessions per week to those on a low income who are unable to afford the full rate. The cost of these sessions is £30.
