FAQs

Counselling

The day and time, number and frequency of sessions are agreed between the client and counsellor. Each session will normally last 50 mins. Counselling can be time limited (for example 6-12 weeks) or it can be opened ended, where we review our progress at pre-agreed dates.

I work with individuals on a face to face basis. Your counselling session is all about you; you are the focus and we will work at your pace. I will not judge, lecture or advise you. My role is to listen and support you.

Drop me a message through our contact form or call me on 07496 784 532.

I offer an initial, no obligation session. This will allow you the chance to experience therapy and discuss your needs and goals for therapy.

Counselling can be used to support people in distress or to help deal with a traumatic event. Sometimes it can be hard to process difficult emotions. Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore your feelings and thoughts in a safe and supportive environment. Whether you are struggling with a single issue or facing a more complex situation, I will work with you to help explore your situation and support you with identifying and achieving any goals you may have.

Remote Counselling

The current government advice is to stay home. As a result, I am no longer offering face to face sessions with clients. I have temporarily, moved my practice to remote working. This means you will be offered the chance to have your counselling session on the phone or via an online video service.

Contact me to find out more information.

I use zoom for my online sessions. Prior to the session, I will send you a link to a password protected counselling room. At the start of your session, you simply click the link to access my counselling room.

If you haven’t used zoom before, it’s very simple. You don’t need an account to access it. Here’s a link to a short information video on how to use zoom. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting
