Frequently Asked Questions
Please note that due to the current situation with Covid 19 I am offering online and telephone sessions rather than face-to-face work.
How do I arrange a counselling session?
Phone me on +44(0)7581 325846 or email [email protected]. If you get my confidential voicemail, just leave your name and number and I'll call you back as soon as I can. I can usually offer an appointment within one week.
How do I know if you are the right counsellor for me?
You are welcome to get in touch for an informal discussion.
What does it cost?
Once we have agreed to work together, sessions cost as follows:
Do you offer couple counselling?
Although I'm happy to discuss relationship issues, I currently work with individuals, not with couples. If you are looking for a couples counsellor, I suggest you try the BACP's search facility at https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/what-therapy-can-help-with/relationships/online-relationship-counselling/
I am a manager wanting to refer an employee for counselling: can you help?
Yes, I regularly accept referrals from firms where employees require counselling support. I am also happy to discuss referrals from Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) providers, and have a great deal of experience of this type of counselling.
How many sessions will I need?
We'll agree an approximate number of sessions at the start. At the moment, I tend to work in blocks of four or six sessions. If we then review and agree that more are required, we may agree to book a further couple of sessions, or another block.
I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework concerning confidentiality. This means I shall keep what you tell me private. In rare circumstances, if I thought there was a risk of harm to you or to another person, or if required by the law, we might need to discuss this further.
