What can I talk about?

You can talk about anything that's bothering you, however large or small you think your

problem is.

Experience shows that it is often better to catch a difficulty early on, before it has the

chance to grow. However, I am still happy to see you even if you have reached crisis point

and everything seems impossible.

Is counselling confidential?

I will not normally give information to family, friends, doctors or anyone else without your

permission. The only time I might break confidentiality is if there is a serious risk of harm to

yourself or others.

How much does counselling cost ?

My charges are:

-       £50 per 60 minute session for individuals

-       £70 per 60 minute session for couples

What happens in the first session ?

The first session is used to explore the possibility of you and I working together. It is a chance

for you to ask any questions about how I work and what counselling entails. It is also an

opportunity to discuss what your expectations of counselling might be and any anxieties you

might have about beginning. The first session will also clarify practicalities such as fees and

timing of sessions. We will start get to know each other and it is an opportunity to discuss

your concerns and hopes about counselling.

At the end of the first meeting the following outcomes are common:

- We both/all agree for counselling to continue, either on a short or longer term basis
- No further appointments are needed. This may be because you got what you wanted from

  the consultation, or because you and I decided other ways of resolving your problem would

  be the best option
- We agree that another source of help is more relevant to you

How long does counselling last?

If after the first session you feel that you would like to begin counselling, then sessions can

carry on for as long as you wish them to. You may find that a few sessions are all that you

need, or you may wish to continue for longer. Each session of counselling lasts 60 minutes.

You will be normally be offered a weekly appointment at a regular time for the number of

sessions agreed between us. As a general guide, we will review the work every 6 sessions.

Can you help someone I know?

You are welcome to contact me to talk through any concerns you have for a

family member/partner/friend etc. However, it is very important that the person who will

receive the counselling agrees to the appointment. Counselling is unlikely to help if someone

feels pressured or coerced into attending.

If you are finding it difficult to deal with another person's problems or behaviour then it may

be helpful for you to consider counselling as support for yourself.
