How long are the sessions and how often?
Sessions are weekly lasting 50 minutes, ideally at the same time each week. Working together, either for a set period of time (for example for six to twelve sessions) or for a more open-ended time, which we will agree upon together.
What happens if I need to cancel a session?
It is understandable that unpreventable things may come up which cause you to cancel a session. However, I would like you to let me know at least 24 hours in advance if you can’t make the session. If you don’t let me know in advance you will need to pay for the missed session. This allows me to see someone else at that time. Ideally, you would attend all your sessions so you can get maximum benefit from the counselling experience.
Is there any pressure for me to share?
Counselling is a process which unfolds at a pace determined by you, and you are in control of the process. My role is to reason together with you and to support you as you explore what may be troubling you and to take the steps to effect change.
How will I know if you’re the right counsellor for me?
Research shows that the relationship between counsellor and client is the most important factor in determining positive therapeutic outcomes. It is of the utmost importance that we both sense a connection and feel that we are able to work together.
Will what I tell you be kept confidential?
The therapeutic environment should be a safe place enabling one to openly discuss their feelings. As a counsellor I am bound by a code of ethics, which means that what you share will be treated with respect, sensitivity and confidentiality. I will not tell others what you have shared with me. I am also bound by a duty of care and there are rare circumstances when I am ethically bound to break confidentiality, but I would always do this with your knowledge. Breaches of confidentiality will be further explained in our contractual agreement.
