Q.1. How many sessions will I need?
A. If you have a single problem you wish to work through, we could work within time limited therapy. We would discuss this at the first session, ideally the work would cover at least 6 sessions.
Open ended work is just that and suitable for people wishing to work holistically with life changes or traumas, for instance. Throughout open ended therapy we will regularly assess the work in our sessions and what you wish to happen going forward.
Q.2. Is it important to meet each week?
A. It is important to meet at least once a week for the therapeutic work to benefit you.
Q.3. How long are the sessions?
A. Each session is 50 minutes in length.
Q.3. I can't get to you in the day, what can I do?
A. If it is impossible for you to attend sessions on a day in the week, i do offer some evening and early morning appointments, I also offer a few Saturday morning appointments.
Q.4. What if I am nervous or I don't want to commit to a full session straight away?
A. This is understandable. I offer a phone consultation or a 20 minute free initial session (Worplesdon only), for us to meet and see if we can work together. It is totally your choice and you may decide you do not want to book further sessions and this is OK. However most people do book and find counselling beneficial.
Q.5. How much will it cost me?
A. Counselling sessions for individuals cost £50 and last 50 minutes
Counselling sessions for couples cost £70 and last 60 minutes
Q.6. How do I pay for my sessions?
A. Sessions can be paid for by cash on the day or by bank transfer before the session takes place. Bank details will be found on the paperwork you receive in your first session, so it may be wise to bring cash to the first session.
Q.7. What if I can not attend my session?
A. If you can not attend your session, let me know as soon as possible. There is a 48 hour notice period after which time your session will be charged in full. In exceptional circumstances I may be able to reschedule your appointment.
