Frequently Asked Questions
Please feel free to call me or email me with any questions that you may have, and if I am unable to take your call please leave a message and I will respond to any messages as promptly as possible.
What happens in the first session?
The first session we have is free of charge and is the chance for you to assess if I am the right person for you. It also gives me the opportunity to understand what you are looking for and to see if what I can offer will suit you, before making an agreement to work together.
How often are the sessions?
To begin with sessions are usually weekly in order to establish a therapeutic relationship. Regular appointments are suggested for the therapy to be effective. I endeavour to accommodate clients that are perhaps unable to attend at the same day/time each week. Regular reviews are included to ensure that the counselling is meeting your needs.
How long are sessions?
Sessions are 50 minutes and can be booked one at a time or in a block. Some clients will come for a few sessions to look at a specific issue; others will choose to work for a longer period on an open-ended basis.
Where is your practice?
Counselling sessions take place at my home in Twyford. I have a dedicated room in my home that is quiet, comfortable and confidential. The room overlooks the garden and is very private. There is parking available on the drive.
How much do the sessions cost?
Each 50 minute counselling session is £40
Payment is due at each session by cash or cheque.
How do I make contact?
Making the decision to take the first step to contact a counsellor can be very daunting. I am very aware of this and understand how hard it can be. Please choose the method of contact with which you are most comfortable.
Enquiries and appointments can be made directly by calling 07596839947.
If I am unable to speak to you in person, please leave a message on the confidential answering service and I will return your call.
