A key component of the counselling environment is our agreement to work together, and this is something we will discuss in the first session.
My professional responsibilities include creating an environment of trust and confidentiality in keeping with the UKCP's Code of Ethics and Professional Practice. There are some exceptional situations (for example, if there were a serious risk of your coming to harm) in which it may be necessary to notify an external professional. However, if that became an issue of concern, I would want to discuss it with you first.
In keeping with the Code of Ethics, and as a way to enhance and maintain good practice, I am in regular ongoing supervision.
£65 per 50-minute session

At the first meeting we will talk about what brings you to therapy and how we might work together. After that we would meet at a regular day and time each week, sometimes for more than one session a week. A session lasts 50 minutes.
The fee is £65 per 50-minute session, but concessions may be available depending on your circumstances. Therapy is a commitment, so if you cancel or do not attend a session, a fee will still be payable.
