Frequently Asked Questions

How long is each session?

Each session is 50 minutes.

How often should I have appointments?

Most people find that weekly sessions work well fpr them, paricularly at the start, whilst we are getting to know one another and building a trusting relationship. At times this can be difficult due to shift work and other commitments, or also financial reasons. This is not a problem at all.

How much do sessions cost?

Each session is £50.

How do I pay?

Payment is requested 24 hours prior to the appointment via bank transfer where possible. I am also able to take cash.

What happens in the first session?

During the first session we will go through my counselling agreement which provides us both with clear boundaries for our work together. I will take a few details from you during this session, including your address and date of birth, as well as Next of Kin details (as required by my insurance company). All information is locked away in a filing cabinet in compliance with GDPR.

After this, the first session is yours to discuss what you want to, without any pressure from me to discuss anything you don't want to.

Where do you offer counselling?

I work from a room in Northwich Town Centre, and I also work with people all over the UK as well as in different countries using Zoom.

Will you share with anyone else that I am coming for counselling?

The only person I would speak to about our work together is my supervisor who is a highly experienced counsellor and I only ever use initials so you would not be identifiable. There are a few other instances where I may need to discuss things elsewhere, which is all covered in my counselling agreement which we both read through and agree to before any counselling commences.

How many sessions will I need?

The amount of sessions varies for everybody. I am able to work with you for as long as you need the sessions.

If you have any other questions at all, please just ask.

Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.'
