Beginning counselling can seem a daunting experience and often my clients have questions about what they should expect. Everyone’s counselling needs are different. The aim is for us to work together and build a therapeutic relationship where you can explore what you need to in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space.

How long are sessions?
Counselling appointments are 50 minutes long.
What will happen at my first appointment?

At your first appointment I will ask you a few questions, discuss some of the events that have brought you to counselling and look at how I might be able to help. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions you have about having counselling and we will consider together your best options going forward.

How do I continue with counselling?
If you wish to proceed with counselling after your initial consultation, we will agree a day and time to meet each week until your counselling ends to maintain the consistency of your counselling.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of consultations required will depend on what issues you bring and upon what you would like us to focus. Typically, short term counselling is between six and twelve sessions and longer term therapy is in excess of twelve. I offer individual counselling on a short term or long-term basis.
Can I stop at any time?
Yes. You may end your sessions whenever you feel necessary or you may wish to take a counselling break and resume counselling, when ready, at a later date.
