What next?

You are going to address important changes in your life and will need to make sure you find the right person to work with. You will probably have several questions that you want to ask and the easiest way to do this is to give me a ring or email me.

At your first appointment we can discuss what you would like to explore and achieve from counselling. It is also an opportunity for you to get a sense of how we might work together.

Counselling sessions last an hour and are usually once weekly.  The number of sessions that clients come for depends on the nature of their issues and what they want to achieve.  Most people tend to need a minimum of about 6 – 8 sessions.

Confidentiality and Data Protection

Counselling is confidential and I will not disclose any information about a client to a third party.  However, I may be legally obliged to break confidentiality if certain types of criminal behaviour were to be disclosed, and also in extreme circumstances if I believe a client or someone else to be at risk.

Client data is stored securely in accordance with the latest data protection legislation (GDPR).  I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), reference no. A8385555.

Fees

Please contact me for an initial appointment at a reduced rate of £30.  Subsequent sessions are charged at £45 for individual counselling and £60 for couple counselling.

If you cancel a session with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged the full fee for the missed session.
