General Information

Meeting
I offer an initial meeting  free of charge which lasts up to 30 Minutes, without obligation. During this time, you can get a feel for what counselling involves and how it may help you. It will also enable you to ask any questions you have to enable you to decide if counselling is for you and to explore if we are suited to working together. 

Fees and Terms
Following the initial meeting, when both of us have made the commitment to work together, we can decide upon a start date and time to commence our work together.  At  our first session we will go through the written contract, whereby you will again have the opportunity to raise any additional questions. Each session will take place at the same time and place every week and each session will last for 50 minutes.

Payment of Fees
Sessions cost £40 for 1:1 sessions with adults payable by cash on the day at the beginning of each session or BACs transfer payable the morning of the session. 

Confidentiality
I am a member of BACP and work within the Ethical Framework. As part of that framework, confidentiality is a key ethical principle, I will maintain confidentiality in accordance with the code and it’s exceptions such as, if I, the counsellor considers the client to be at risk to him/herself or to/from others.

Cancellations
Cancellation of an appointment with less than 48 hours notice or failure to show for the appointment will incur the full fee. Any missed sessions by you (client) must be paid for unless an alternative slot can be arranged within that week. Sessions cancelled by the counsellor (me) will not be charged for. Reasonable notice of any cancellations will be given by both client and counsellor.

Ending Counselling
Sessions are open-ended which means you decide when you wish to end the counselling. It is always beneficial to have a minimum of three sessions notice to enable us to work towards a ‘good’ ending.
