Anything said by a client in the counselling room remains within the counselling room. The rare exception to this is where it is thought you are a danger to yourself or others. In such circumstances the counsellor will always endeavor to discuss this with you first.
The counsellor has regular supervision to ensure that her quality of practice is at the highest level possible and that she is at all times working in your best interest.

This assessment session will enable you to get a feel of how i work and it enables me to get a feel of how i can support you and allows us to assess if i am the right counsellor for you. If you/we decide that my service is unsuitable, i can refer you on to another counsellor.

I run a very busy professional private counselling practice and often have a waiting list. And ask for payment at the end of your session to secure your next appointment, payable by cash or cheque please. Please note that this payment is non refundable if you do not attend.
A limited amount of concession appointments are available before 5pm only for those on a low income or no income.
You will be required to attend weekly sessions. We will re-negotiate this weekly contract as your counselling journey progesses.
Ending The Counselling Process
When you feel your counselling journey is coming to an end, please let me know, so that we can discuss and agree on how to end the counselling process therapeutically. The closing process over a number of sessions depending on how long we have been working together and what suits you best.
If you are unable to make your appointment i will endeavor to find you an alternative appointment for that week. If we are unable to do so you will be required to pay for the session you missed.
All sessions missed by the client will be paid for in full with the exception of agreed breaks in therapy and holidays.
Please wait in the small waiting area downstairs and i will come down and collect you at your appointed time.
Breaks in therapy
You will be given notice of breaks in therapy and if the counsellor needs to cancel a session for reason of illness.
