As a registered memeber of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to its Ethical Framework and Code of Practice. 

I have professional insurance and I am registered with the ICO. 

I undertake regular monthly supervision and regular training for me personal development. 

I tried to answer most common questions, but please do contact me if there is anything else you would like to know. 

How much do session cost?

Face to face, 50min sessions £55

Online 50min sessions £55

Payments by BACS before the session. 

How often should I have sessions?

I normally suggest weekly sessions to start. But we can work out frequency of the sessions to suit your needs. 

How many sessions will I need?

This really depends on your individual needs. I would suggest to start from six sessions. However, there is absolutely no obligation to commit to a specific number. 

What happens if I need to cancel a session?

I would appreciate 24 hours notice of cancellation - text or email. If you know you are going to miss a session and let me know, I am very hapy to re-arrange. 

If there is less then 24 hours or no reason given for not turning up - full payment is expected for the session. 

What if I am worried about coming to counselling? What can I expect from the first session?

I completely understand that the idea of seeking counselling can be a bit intimidating for some individuals. I want to assure you that my primary aim is to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you can feel comfortable and free from judgment. 

It's not uncommon for people to experience anxiety when considering counseling, and I have extensive experience in supporting individuals who may be feeling this way.

During your first 20-30 minute session, I encourage you to take the time to get to know me and my counselling approach. This initial session is an excellent opportunity for you to see if my personality and the way I work align with your needs and preferences. It's equally important for me to understand why you're seeking counselling so that I can tailor my expertise to best suit your requirements.

If we decide to move forward and work together, I will provide you with a counselling contract. However, I want to emphasize that there will be plenty of opportunities for us to discuss any questions or concerns you may have along the way. Your comfort and understanding throughout the counselling process are of utmost importance to me, and I am here to support you on your journey to well-being.

Are sessions confidential?

Sessions are confidential in line with the BACP Ethical Framework. 
To ensure that I work in the best way I can for my clients, I undertake regular professional supervision. It is to check if I do adhere to the ethical coe as well as for my personal professional development.  I do not share client's personal or identifiable details during these meetings. 

What if after a few sessions, I decide I don't want to continue?

That is ok! If you decide you don't want to continue participating in counselling anymore that is fine. The number of sessions you attend is up to you. 
I would strongly suggest you give a week notice to have the chance to discuss the decision and complete the process adequately and not abruptly. 

Can I talk about anything?

The answer is: yes you can!  There is absolutely no judgement. 

Everything you talk about in our sessions is confidential. There are certain circumstances when confidentiality may be broken - particularly if I am required by law to do so. Also if you disclose a risk of serious harm to you or someone else.  When we meet I can answer any questions or talk about any worries you may have. 

How long will it take?

Each client is different and we can work out together how many sessions you might need. I offer frequent reviews during the process to help with the reflection about the process. 

Can I organise sessions for someone else?

You may enquire about sessions for someone else, but the commitment to counselling must come from the client. I cannot offer counselling to someone without their consent.
