Frequently Asked Questions

Can anybody come for counselling and psychotherapy?

Yes. As soon as you think the time is right for you. There is no need for a referral from the NHS or any other organisation, and no lengthy waiting list.

Why do people come for Counselling and Psychotherapy?

People seek help after feeling that something is a 'bit off' in their life, or when they recognise that they need support during challenging times. Therapy offers a safe and confidential space to explore emotions, thoughts and patterns of behaviour. You might consider therapy to help navigate your way through personal struggles such as anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment difficulties or loss.

Do you work with children?

Yes I work with children and young people as well as adults. I have a great deal of experience in working with children and can work in a variety of creative ways as well as using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques. Please note that I do not work with children under the age of 7.

How long are sessions?

Children's sessions are 50 minutes and adult sessions are 55 minutes.

How regularly will we have sessions?

This depends on you, your needs and what you can commit to. I understand that life can be busy and you may have other commitments. I would recommend consistent weekly sessions initially, but this is not an absolute necessity and I am happy to work around what suits you.

How are payments made?

I accept payments by bank transfer 48 hours in advance of session time, or cash.

What is your cancellation policy?

I require 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule a session.

Is your therapy space accessible for a person who has a disability?

I aim to be as inclusive as possible. However, my therapy room is in the basement of a building that is only accessible by stairs. If you have a disability that would make this difficult, there is the option of online therapy.

How many sessions will I need?

This depends on what is going on for you. I work with clients that need both short term and longer term work. This is something that we can talk through in your first session. I do suggest committing to six sessions initially before reviewing.

Is what we discuss confidential?

Yes. I maintain strict confidentiality and adhere to a professional ethical framework to protect your privacy. I am also a registered data handler with the Information Commisioner's Office. We will cover confidentiality in your first session and the specific reasons it may need to be broken.

What happens in the first session?

We will talk through what's known as a working agreement so that we have a shared understanding of what to expect from each other and our expectations with regards to things such as confidentiality. You also have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. Then at your own pace we can talk through your reasons for seeking help and what you are hoping to gain from counselling. I may ask questions to get more of a picture of what is going on for you. We will also decide together if we feel like a 'good fit' and if you feel comfortable working with me before booking further sessions.
