What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling and psychotherapy are helping processes and require the counsellors and psychotherapists commitment to understanding the unique individuality of the client they are working with in order to promote a sense of psychological health and well-being for the client. This applies to both counselling and psychotherapy relationships. A psychotherapy relationship can be longer in length than a counselling relationship and tends to explore and address personal issues in more depth, which often affect how we feel about ourselves, how we find ourselves behaving in relationships and how we function in our everyday lives.
What can I expect from counselling and what do counsellors and psychotherapists do?
You will be offered a space that is free from judgement and where you will be listened to, accepted, respected and supported whilst being encouraged to explore the issues that bring you into counselling. These can be unresolved issues from the past which are having an impact on you in the here and now. Counsellors and psychotherapists will not give you advice, they will not tell you what to think, feel or do. Instead they will help you to explore and find your own solutions.
What happens in the first session and how many sessions do you think I may need?
The first appointment is also known as an assessment session. This is where the client offers information about themselves, talks about what brings them into counselling or psychotherapy and what they require from the sessions. The counsellor or psychotherapist will assess whether they feel they can support the client. At the end of the session it is a mutual decision as to whether you feel you can work together. If we both agree then further appointments are made. At this stage it is not easy to decide how many sessions a client may need and therefore the work and progress is reviewed regularly. Sessions last for 50 minutes.
Are the sessions confidential?
I am a registered member of UKCP and am bound by their ethics, including a commitment to client confidentiality. Anonymity is also upheld when in supervision
The fee for individual counselling and psychotherapy is £50 per 50 minutes. A minimum of 48 hours notice is required to cancel an appointment otherwise the full fee will be charged.
