This is a list of the most commonly asked questions by our clients and we hope you find the information useful. If you have a question that doesn't appear in our list, feel free to contact us on 07884 950139 or email.
How long will it take to see results?
It normally takes a few sessions for you to become aware of changes and improvements in your life. Everybody is different and will have different goals depending on their situation. Whatever your need, we are here to help.
We generally recommend booking a block of six sessions with a review during the fourth, before deciding on any further help.
How do I know I am getting a good service?
As a qualified counsellor, I am bound by BACP's Ethical Framework and receive regular supervision. This is provided by a trained counsellor and supervisor, and accredited member of BACP. A copy of BACP's Ethical Framework can be found here. Supervision is essential in providing a professional and trustworthy service. This is when a counsellor will discuss the work they are doing with their clients and seek advice when required. During supervision a client's identity will not be disclosed.
The work carried out between the counsellor and client is strictly confidential. In the event that you, a vulnerable person or a child under 16 years of age is at serious risk of harm, the counsellor will discuss with you your options and an appropriate way forward.
How much do you charge?
The initial consultation is charged at £20, which covers the room hire. This is an informal chat that helps us establish what you would like to gain from counselling and whether you feel safe to continue with us. Their is no obligation to continue with counselling. Our charges have been set slightly below the average price in this area enabling more people to access help for mental health issues. For further information, please click here.
