Frequently Asked Questions
Therapy works mainly through the relationship between the client and the counsellor. A counsellor spends over three years training to put themselves aside during a counselling session and focus entirely on the client. It can be liberating for clients to have someone listen to them and it is a chance to discover and clarify what they feel. They can then make informed choices about any changes they want to make in their lives.
A standard session is 50 minutes long. Longer sessions of 60 and 90 minutes are available.
Therapy sessions are usually weekly but can be more or less frequent depending on the client’s preferences and needs.
I am a member of the National Counselling Society and I work to their, and my, ethical guidelines concerning client confidentiality. It is one of the most important parts of therapy. Confidentiality is assured with a couple of possible exceptions which are if the client or someone they know is at risk of serious harm (and then we would discuss options of bringing in other agencies to help).
Fees start at £40 for 50 minutes. 60 minute sessions cost £45 and 90 minute sessions are £65. There are a number of concessionary places available for those who are unemployed, university students, pensioners or on a low income.
It is a good idea to interview 3 or 4 counsellors and then choose the one you feel the most comfortable with. Most counsellors will give a free taster session after which you can both decide if you would like to work together.
Some people go to therapy for a shorter amount of time i.e., 6 or 10 weeks to address a certain issue. Others with more complex issues may want to have a longer spell in therapy.
Each case is unique and ultimately, it is up to the client to decide.
Sessions take place on the phone or through Skype or Zoom.
