If you decide you are interested in Counselling/Psychotherapy, you can contact me by telephone or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange an initial meeting where you will be able to explore any issue that is troubling you. The initial meeting provides an opportunity for you to see whether you feel comfortable working with me as your counsellor. If we decided to work together, we then agree a suitable time to meet for future sessions.
A session is 50 minutes long and begins at the time booked. Sessions are normally arranged on a weekly basis, at the same time and place.
Yes. All issues discussed in the counselling session are confidential. It is only in exceptional circumstances that I would seek a client’s agreement to break confidentiality. As an individual Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and subject to the professional conduct procedure therein.
