Frequently Asked Questions
I have put together a compilation of the most common questions I’ve been asked about the services I provide. If you still have questions after reading through the FAQs, please give me a call or send me an email, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
What should I expect from our first counselling session?
Our intial session will give you the chance to explore what it is you are looking for from counselling and how we can work together to achieve that. I shall do my utmost to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible as I fully appreciate how big a step beginning counselling can feel.
We will also have the opportunity to discuss the number of sessions needed, boundaries, confidentiality and fees. The session should give you a feel as to whether counselling feels right for you.
How long is a session?
A counselling session normally lasts for 50 minutes, EMDR sessions are booked for 90 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
The duration of counselling really depends on your individual needs. Some clients find that they need just a few sessions to gain some clarity as to how and why they are feeling the way they do, whereas others benefit greatly from long-term therapy. We can discuss your needs during our first session and review as we continue to work together.
What are your fees?
A 50 minute counselling session, online or face-to-face, costs £50, including the intial assessment.
Payment is accepted by cash, card or bank transfer at least 24 hours prior to each session.
EMDR assessment and therapy requires a longer session of 90 mins at £80
Where are you based?
My therapy room is based in a comfortable, confidential space at - Therapies, 17 Tudor Court, Wootton Hope Drive, Wootton Fields NN4 6FF. My practice is easily accessible from the M1 J15 and approximately 4 miles from the town centre.
