Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens During Counselling?

You are given a safe, confidential, private space where you can talk about your problems as freely as possible and explore the root causes behind the difficulties you are facing. Whether you are suffering with anxiety, depression, or a trauma of any kind, our sessions provide an opportunity to understand the issue better and develop a bespoke way to move past it that makes sense to you.

How Do I Know If I Need Counselling?

Counselling is suitable for people with any kind of mental health issue, such as depression, anxiety, traumatic memories, loneliness, relationship or family issues, any losses or abuses suffered in the past, or any other recurring issue that you feel like you need help with. There may be a specific problem, such as someone in your workplace, that requires brief solution-focused support.

How Long Does Each Counselling Session Last?

Sessions last 50 minutes.

How Often Should I Have Sessions?

Generally, I see clients on a weekly basis. You may, over time, feel like a session every fortnight is all you need. It’s up to you.

How Do I Pay for Counselling Sessions?

I accept payment by cash, cheque, bank transfer, or by Credit/Debit card.

What If I Can’t Make An Appointment?

If you cannot make an appointment, let me know as soon as possible. Please note that I require 24 hours’ notice for cancellations, otherwise you will be charged the full fee for missed sessions. If you can’t come to an in-person session, I also work with clients over Microsoft Teams, allowing you to be more flexible with your counselling and do it from the comfort of your own home.

My counselling practice gives you a safe place to talk and express emotions in any way you see fit. This is a no-pressure environment. So, if you are curious about counselling in Bournemouth or online, give me a call and we can arrange our first session.
