Frequently Asked Questions
What happens next?
How much is a session?
When and how do I pay for a session?
What if I need to cancel a session?
I understand that there may be times when a session has to be cancelled and I will aim to be flexible around this, but I do ask for a notice period of 24 hours otherwise the full session fee will be chargeable.
What happens in the first session?
The first session is an initial assessment of what has brought you to counselling. There is an assessment form (used to learn more about you and what is bringing you to counselling) to be completed but I can email you the form before the session so that we can save some time in our first session. We will also talk about how we will work together and how I can support you. If we both agree to continue working together there is an therapeutic agreement that I will go over with you and from there we can arrange our next session.
Are the sessions confidential?
How often will we have sessions?
Sessions will normally take place weekly and can usually last from 6 weeks to over a year.
What services do you offer?
I offer counselling services online (secure video or instant chat), email or telephone sessions. If you would like more information please get in touch.
When will I start to see change?
Can I end the sessions whenever I want?
Yes it is totally up to you. If you would like to end your counselling sessions I would encourage that you please let me know in advance if possible so that we can work towards an ending.
