What types of counselling do I offer?
I am an Integrative Counsellor which means that I draw on a range of therapies including Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness and Hypnotherapy.
How long does it take?
The number of counselling sessions required to achieve meaningful change will depend on your needs and what you bring to therapy. If you would like to tackle an isolated problem with a relatively straightforward cause, then 6 to 10 sessions is likely to be enough for you. If you would like to address life long or multiple problems, with more complex causes, you may need longer term therapy. As we discuss your objectives for therapy, we can agree a flexible time frame that you are comfortable with. This does not involve a commitment on your part to any number of sessions.
How often will I need counselling?
Counselling typically takes place once a week although it is common for me to see people fortnightly. There are times when it is right to attend less often, for example towards the end of therapy or perhaps if you just feel like you need occasional support to keep you on track.
My usual hours are Monday to Friday from 0815 to 1630 although it may be possible to book appointments outside of these hours.
Should you need to cancel an appointment you may do so without charge within 24 hours of your appointment time. Any later cancellations will be charged at 50% of the session fee. Unattended appointments, (without notice of cancellation), will be charged at 75% of the session fee.
