Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can counselling help me?
A: Counselling can help if you are prepared to commit yourself to exploring whatever is troubling you openly with your counsellor.
Q: How long will it take?
A: Each person responds differently in the therapeutic process. However, we generally suggest an initial assessment followed by six sessions. During this time your counsellor will form a realistic idea of the number of sessions that might be right for you and this will be discussed with you.
Q: Will anyone know I am seeing a counsellor?
A: We observe complete confidentiality. However, should we ever feel that your doctor or any other specialist professional should become involved we would discuss this with you. To view our GDPR policy, please click here.
