I provide my bank details prior to the start of counselling, and ask that payment is made by bank transfer before each session.
What about Covid-19? Is it safe to meet?The counselling rooms I work from have been risk assessed and there is enough space to practice safe social distancing.
The government has confirmed that services providing support to mental health can remain open.
How do I know if counselling is right for me?If you are uncertain about taking the first step, I am happy to offer a free, informal and confidential chat on the phone.
I will listen to what you would like to get from counselling and if I feel I am unable to help you I can refer to you another counsellor or service that might be better suited to meet your needs.

Online via video conferencing - I use Zoom.
Do you work with trainee counsellors and student counsellors?Yes, and I offer fee concessions for trainee and student counsellors - please get in touch for a chat.
I understand from first hand experience the demands on a student counsellor.
How do I know sessions are confidential?I am bound ethically to provide a confidential service. I will not discuss what you talk about in our sessions with anyone else.
As part of my ethical commitment to my profession I attend monthly supervision. My supervisor also works in a confidential setting. I will discuss client work at supervision however I will not give my supervisor any identifying client information.
If I believe someone is in danger of serious harm I may need to break confidentiality in accordance with the BACP ethical framework, this would be discussed with client and supervisor.
