Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the counselling last and how much does it cost?
The sessions will be 50 minutes long and cost £65.
Is Relationship Counselling or Family Therapy available?
No, I provide one-to-one counselling. However I am happy to refer on to services which can offer specialist relationship counselling organisations and family therapy.
Will what I say be kept Confidential?
Yes, counselling sessions are confidential. The exception would be if you were to pose a danger to yourself or others, in which case the relevant parties would be notified.
Will my counsellor be available for me in a crisis?
I will be available to you at your scheduled appointment time only. In the case of an emergency you will need to seek other resources. Contact your GP, the Samaritans (call 116 123, www.samaritans.org), or, if necessary, emergency services.
Is there a cancellation fee?
I operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel your appointment over 48 hours in advance you will not be charged for the missed session. If you cancel your appointment after that or if can't attend you will still need to pay half the session price which is £32.50 as the time slot would have already been committed to you.
What if I'm late/early for an appointment?
Your appointment will be booked for an agreed. Therefore if you arrive early I won't be available to see you early and likewise if you're late I won't be able to extend your timeslot.
