Your Sessions & Fees

Your Sessions

Each session normally lasts for 50 minutes, the number of sessions will depend on the depth of work.  Some issues may require longer term therapy while others can be resolved with short term work (6 to 8 weeks).  We will, normally, meet once a week at a time that suits you best. However, I fully appreciate you may be unable to attend a session every week due to work, family or financial commitments.  If this is the case, please don’t be put off. I am happy to be flexible and talk to you about fortnightly or monthly sessions in order to work around your needs and commitments yet ensuring you still receive the best from your counselling experience. 

At our first meeting, we will discuss what brings you to counselling and explore what would be beneficial for you at this time.  If it is then mutually agreed that we work together we will agree the number  of sessions we think will be useful, this can be reviewed at any time if necessary.  

We will discuss and sign a joint working agreement which sets out your responsibilities in the counselling process and explains my duty of care to you.  

Of course, throughout the course of therapy, there will be time for you to express any concerns you may have or ask any questions.
