FAQs

What will the sessions be like?

Our initial session will give you the opportunity to assess if you feel comfortable to work with me. Furthermore we can discuss what has brought you to counselling, and how you would like to proceed.

The intention is to meet weekly, at the same time and on the same day. These sessions are in person at a time that suits you. 

I offer both short-term and long-time counselling. Regular reviews give you the opportunity to voice if the counselling is working for you. 

What do you charge?

I charge £50 for a 50 minute session.

How can I pay?

Payments are to be made in advance, or on the day by Bank Transfer or cash. 

Can I cancel a session?

If you need to cancel, please give me as much notice as possible. Any cancellation within 24 hours of the session will be charged at the full fee. 

Where will the sessions take place? 

I am currently based at Hawthorn Holistic Therapies, situated in Conan Doyle Medical Centre, Cameron Toll.  The centre benefits from free parking and several bus routes. The full address is:

Are the sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is an important part of the counselling relationship. As a BACP member, I am bound by the ethical principle of confidentiality. There are exceptions however, details of which will be in the working agreement sent to you before your initial session.
