Frequently Asked Questions
What happens in the first session?
The initial assessment or first session is to provide the opportunity for you to find out if counselling or psychotherapy is suitable for your needs, without commitment.
We would check out if counselling/psychotherapy is a suitable intervention for your particular requirements and decide if we are able to work together, within an agreed number of subsequent sessions.
What is the frequency of sessions?
Usually on a weekly or fortnightly basis, at the same time and day. Each session lasts 50 minutes.
When are appointment times?
I offer flexibility with appointment times, including availability of appointments in the evening.
What is the cost?
Following a free assessment should you decide to continue, subsequent sessions are a minimum fee of £45 p/h (Face to Face) and £25 p/h (Telephone counselling), payable by either cash or by cheque, at the end of the session. I also offer the facility of invoicing at the end of the month.
I am happy to answer any queries. Please give me a call or if you prefer send an email. When I am unavailable to answer the telephone I have a confidential voicemail facility and will return a message promptly.
