What happens next?
If you are interested in seeking counselling with me, please contact me to discuss what you are looking to get out of counselling. I will arrange an initial meeting with you. In the first session we can discuss your needs and explore whether we can work together. I may suggest other agencies that can help you. If we both feel we can work together then we will agree a number of sessions, usually 6, which can be reviewed and extended if necessary.
How much will it cost?
My fee for individual therapy per 50-minute session is £40. Due to the pandemic I am able to offer some concessionary rates. Please contact me if you wish to discuss this.
What happens if a Counselling session is cancelled?
If I have to cancel a session due to illness or something unexpected, you will not be charged.
If you need to cancel, please give me 24 hours notice and then you will not be charged for the missed session.
If either of us is going on holiday, this can be planned for and no charges will apply.
Are the sessions confidential?
Everything you say during your counselling session is confidential. However, I may need to break confidentiality if I feel that you could be at risk to yourself or others. I will always endeavour to inform you before doing this.
As part of my ongoing professional development, I will need to discuss my work with you with my supervisor, who is also bound by confidentiality.
My work complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements and I will provide you with a copy of my GDPR privacy notice if you chose to work with me as your counsellor.
