How many sessions will I need?

I work with clients on both a short-term and longer-term basis depending on individual needs and circumstances.  I offer a free initial 20 - 30 minute telephone consultation during which we can begin to discuss your situation and needs.  During our work together we will agree regular reviews to check how you are finding the counselling process and how you feel at each stage of the counselling journey.  Counselling can at times feel challenging and I am here to support you in your journey. 

 

How regular are counselling sessions?

Our counselling sessions typically last for 50 minutes and clients usually access counselling sessions on a weekly basis, however, this can be adjusted according to your needs. 

 

How much does counselling cost?

Counselling sessions are £40 per 50-minute session, which can be paid by BACS transfer or PayPal 24 hours in advance of our scheduled appointment.

 

What will happen during our sessions?

I offer a free initial telephone consultation during which we can discuss how we can best work together and to give you a better idea of whether I am the right counsellor for you.  Following this, should you decide to continue we will schedule our first counselling session as part of which we will begin to explore your experiences, expectations and needs from the counselling process.  At any point during our first session or subsequent sessions you are free to ask me any questions regarding my approach, training or raise any concerns regarding our therapeutic work together.  I believe the therapeutic relationship is central to counselling and client's progress through their counselling journey, therefore, we will regularly review your experience within our sessions, and I would encourage you to raise any concerns or difficulties you may be experiencing.  Our counselling sessions are your space; therefore, it is important that your needs, wants, and safety are respected throughout our work together.
