Frequently Asked Questions
What type of Counselling do you provide and which is best for me?
I offer two types of counselling, open ended and short-term counselling.
Open ended therapy proceeds at the client's own pace. This allows the client time and space to slowly develop insight into the root cause of their concerns. Client's continue in therapy for as long as they want to, which can range from months to years.
Short-term counselling is a good step for people who do not want to make a long term commitment or have a particular challenge to work with such as bereavement, health or redundancy. It is often suitable for people who have had counselling in the past and want to return to work on a specific issue.
What does a Counsellor do?
I listen carefully and make sure you have clarified the challenging areas in your own way and help you decide what goals you want to aim towards, and work with you at your own psychological pace.
Can I have Counselling even though I am not in a crisis?
Yes, clients choose counselling to take care of themselves and their wellbeing and to maintain positive mental health.
How do I know if a Counsellor is qualified?
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I adhere to professional code of ethics and conduct, and have regular ongoing supervision to ensure safe and ethical practice.
