Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions:

1. How many sessions may I need?

My usual suggestion when working with a client is to start with an agreement of 6-10 weekly sessions which we review together as the weeks pass. There is however nothing set in stone and the number of sessions depends very much on individual need. It is not ethical for me to continue sessions with a client who does not need to continue counselling

2. Why does private counselling seem to cost so much?

3. How is the relationship with my Counsellor different to the one I have with my family and friends?

4. Will counselling work?

5. Will what I say be confidential?

6. Am I normal?
