Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know whether this is right for me?
Whatever you are bringing, we can discuss things as you wish at a pace that is right for you. I really appreciate taking that first step is a big one and the most important aspect is you feel comfortable in the work and we allow things to unfold from there.
What does it cost?
I currently offer sessions at £50 and try not to change costs if possible during our course of sessions.
I also have a few low cost sessions reserved. We can discuss options if you feel this is needed for you (often if you either have a low or no wage at the moment).
How long will psychotherapy or counselling last?
Sessions normally last for 50 mins once a week. There is no commitment to continue for a certain number of sessions with the number of sessions depending only on you. Whether short term or long term, counselling is driven by your needs and goals and what you wish to address. In general, personal development or deeper issues can take longer than single concerns, however we can agree together goals and aims at the outset and reassess things as we progress.
When are you available?
I have some day and evening appointments available on weekdays. Please contact me to arrange an initial appointment when we can then agree a regular session time.
Are you regulated?
I am have liability insurance and adhere to the UKCP and BACP guidelines.
