How are sessions arranged?
Sessions are available on Skype, Zoom, Google Meets, FaceTime or phone.
Are appointments set at fixed weekly intervals?
Not necessarily. Subject to availability sessions can be booked to suit your own preference.
Is the service confidential?
Yes, the content of sessions is wholly confidential according to ethical guidelines of BACP. Only in extreme cases, such as if someone’s life or children’s safety were at risk, would any contact be made with third parties.
What happens at the initial consultation?
The focus is on contracting the counselling relationship; explaining/experiencing the process; gathering relevant background information; identifying your aims/goals for therapy.
It is also opportunity for me assess whether I can help. Some clients are referred on to other agencies.
It can provide a chance for you to ask questions and to discover if you feel that you are ‘in the right place‘.
If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.
