Questions you may have about counselling

Q: How many sessions do I have to have?

This will depend on the issue or issues you wish to deal with but we review how things are progressing and you will primarily decide when you are ready to end.  You are not tied to a pre-determined number of sessions. The number of sessions you require depends on a number of factors including the type of issue you bring.

Q: Can my employer find out I have been for counselling?

The fact you are attending counselling is confidential, no-one will know unless you wish to disclose it. Even members of your family are not allowed to know.

Everything you say in our sessions together is confidential. The only times this strict confidentiality can be broken is in a small number of specific situations which we discuss in the first session.

Q: Will my counsellor be able to advise me on what to do?

I won't advise you by instructing you to take a certain course of action. This is because it may not be the right course of action for you. I will instead help you to find your own solutions.

Q: Do you have disabled access?

My counselling room is accessed by a flight of steps. I have a sloping drive and access is possible for those with ambulant mobility from the rear of the property. 

Please note wheelchair access is not possible and I would offer Online Therapy in this instance.
