Counselling is confidential. Sometimes you may wish to let someone know you are seeing a counsellor but that is your decision.
I will never telephone you unless you are happy for me to do so or acknowledge you outside of the counselling room unless you feel comfortable with that.
Confidentiality may be broken is if I feel either you or someone else may be in danger, if possible I will try to discuss this with you first.
I keep some short handwritten notes which are available should you wish to see them. They are for my personal use only and do not contain your name or identifiable details. Your personal details are kept securely and separately.
I keep the notes for three years should you wish to return to see me, at that point they are destroyed.

Fees and Session Times
The fee for Counselling is £45 per session (Individuals and Couples), sessions are one hour in length.
During the first session we will spend some time on what you would like to gain from counselling and how we can work together. There is also a chance for us to decide if you feel you can benefit from this work and there is no obligation for further sessions. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable.
I will offer you an appointment as soon as I can to fit in with the time and day we are both available. This can be almost immediately, but usually within the week.
If you are a trainee counsellor looking for therapy please feel free to contact me to discuss terms for the discounted rate
