FAQs

What happens in a counselling session?

Counselling means a commitment to regular sessions - normally once a week with each session lasting 50 minutes. You can speak in confidence without fear of being judged. 

How long do I need counselling for?

Initially you will contract for 6 sessions but this will be reviewed in the 4th session. 

Do I need a GP referral?

Since this is a private, paid for service you do not need a GP referral.

What happens if I can’t make a session?

If you are unable to make a session, it is important that you let me know as soon as possible and at least 24 hours before your appointment. If possible I will offer you another slot in the same week to make up the time but this is not always possible. If you give less than 24 hours notice, you will have to pay for the missed session.
