Frequently Asked Questions

Having a safe space to unpack past or present experiences you are struggling with, knowing that you are not being judged, feeling understood, accepted and validated is immensely liberating. A problem shared really is a problem halved- you no longer feel so alone. The whole counselling process helps you gain clarity, self knowledge and understanding, and also gives you more control over your own life. It helps you navigate your way through difficulties better, make better choices and ultimately will lead to a much better quality of life.

Sessions are 50 minutes and cost £50. If 6 are booked in advance, you pay for 5. Or you can pay as you go. You can pay by bank transfer/BACs or cash, whatever suits you.

How many sessions you have is completely up to you, although I would recommend at least 6. However, you may need fewer or wish to continue for longer. The day, time and frequency is totally flexible and depends on your personal preference and availability.

After you have got in touch, have read through my Contract and completed the Referral form, we will arrange the first session. This first session will be for you to let me know what you want to talk about and what you need help with. We can then agree on the approximate frequency of the sessions and how many you may want and need. What you tell me in the first session will form the framework for future sessions, but the sessions are organic and it is also fine and often very helpful, if you want to bring other issues to the sessions at any time, as they arise. I often give some exercises or tools to practice in between the sessions, which helps you put into practice what we’ve talked about so we can reflect on their impact at the next session. Helping you to help yourself and find what works best is what my aim is.

Preferably by Email: or text 07508 382 006, as I am often unable to answer calls. I will then arrange a good time to give you a call to briefly discuss what you would like support with and we can agree on whether you would like to go ahead and book the first session in.
