Concerns you may have

 

How long does counselling last?

Counselling can be short or long term; just a few weeks or open-ended. Each individual session is fifty minutes.

 

Are therapy sessions confidential?

I understand how important it is for you to be able to speak freely about your thoughts and feelings. Client identity and everything said during sessions is completely confidential. Unless I feel that you may harm yourself or someone else. I have regular supervision to support me in my work and may therefore discuss the issues you bring to counselling but never disclose your identity. This is to ensure that my work with you is ethical and effective.

 

How often do I need to have counselling?

A regular weekly session is the best way of sustaining and building on the work we are doing.

 

What about Ending?

Beginnings and endings have a lot in common; they are times of transition, uncertainty, sometimes chaos. They may evoke strong emotions which is why it is an important part of our work together.

They also have the potential to offer great therapeutic benefit to you, especially if your prior experience of endings has been traumatic.
