Frequently Asked Questions
How does counselling work during 'lockdown'?
In much the same way as before in that I use a calm, comfortable, confidential space. My clients have their regular time, or flexible times if life is different due to Covid19. A preferred medium is agreed and the sessions go ahead as normal. Payment is made by BACS.
How much does it cost?
£40 per session.
How long is a session?
What happens if I can't make a session?
Whenever possible we would plan breaks and endings. 24 hours notice of cancellation is required or the full fee for the missed session will be charged.
How many sessions does it take?
A good question and one I get asked often! I have experience of working short, medium and long-term with clients and can be flexible, but every client is unique so that is something we'd work out together.
When will I feel better?
Clients often feel immediate relief from getting things off their chests but I always point out that things often feel worse before they get better because you'll be getting out and looking at your story and situation and all of the accompanying feelings. I liken it to cleaning a wound safely and with care - it might hurt at times, but I'll be keeping an eye on how you are managing and work accordingly.
What do I do if I want to stop counselling?
Talk to me! Many relationships and experiences end badly with bad feelings, arguments or just drift leaving you with unfinished business. I'm big enough to discuss ending without pressuring you or acting up so lets explore your feelings and work towards a healthy, empowering ending together.
