How Long Will Counselling Last For?
Each counselling session will be a 50-minute hour and, will usually be at the same time every week, although I can offer flexible appointment times should your schedule require this. We will start with 1-6 sessions and then review - your counselling can be as short or as long as you would like it to be. Both short-term and long-term work undertaken.
What Happens If I Am Late or Unable to Keep an Appointment?
Please let me know 24 hours before a session if you are unable to attend, otherwise you will be charged. If you are late, due to unforeseen circumstances, we will discuss it in your session.
What If I Don't Like It?
Sometimes counselling can be uncomfortable to start with, there is no magic cure. Sometimes things can feel worse before they feel better but if you are prepared to examine your feelings, it may enable you to make more sense of the world around you.
Do I Have to Have a Major Problem to Be Counselled?
No, you can use counselling for personal development to look at improving skills in confidence, assertiveness and self-esteem building. You may just want a listening ear to help you move forward in a different direction.
