More information about Counselling.
What can I expect?
Therapy sessions last for 50 minutes and usually occur weekly, though some clients like to come every two weeks or others prefer more frequent sessions. I am flexible to your requirements. Our first session is for us to meet, to talk about your needs and explore the counselling process. We can then choose to work together for as long is needed with regular reviews.
The Therapeutic process.
I offer an introductory meeting at a reduced price of £35, it is an opportunity for us to decide how counselling can benefit you and to get a taste of how we may work together. Some people find that a few sessions can help them address a specific problem, while others choose to work on a longer term basis to help focus on more deeper concerns.
I see clients on Fridays in Guildford and evenings near Dorking by appointment. I offer face to face counselling in Guildford town centre or near Dorking.
Please call or email to find out more.
I treat all information disclosed to me by you as confidential. However, if I believe that you are in danger of harming yourself or others, or that a child is at risk I reserve the right to inform outside agencies. My aim is to discuss this with you first where possible.
The BACP is the largest governing body of counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK. To be a member, therapists have to meet high standards. I am bound by the BACP ethical framework which safeguards and protects the client and the counsellor. I also undertake continued professional development each year to continue to develop new skills to benefit my clients.
Safe and Ethical practice.
To ensure safe and ethical practice, counsellors and psychotherapists are requires to attend clinical supervision throughout our career. I undertake monthly supervision to discuss my work and ensure best practice, however the identity of my clients always remains confidential during this process.
