Frequently Asked Questions...


How long is each counselling session?
Each session lasts 60 minutes.

How much will a session cost me?
My standard fee for individuals is £38 per hour and for couples is £45 per hour. Concessions can be offered to students and people on very low income.

What is the counselling room like?
The room is situated in a quiet village location in Pulham St Mary in Norfolk. It has comfortable seating and is an informal and private place for you to talk freely.

How many sessions will I need?
Some people need only one session, others may need counselling for many months. It always depends on the individual and we'll discuss this at your first session. It's important to have an end goal in sight so I usually offer a course of six sessions, with a progress review at the end. At this point, we can decide together whether to end there or continue your therapy.

Your counselling will never be ended abruptly.

What can I expect at my first counselling session?

The first session is an informal assessment. I'll talk you through my policies regarding confidentiality, ethics, bookings/cancellations and payment to ensure we have safe boundaries with which to work. You'll have the opportunity to discuss what's led you to seek counselling, ask questions and raise any points that you're still unclear on.

It's important you choose a counsellor who suits your needs, someone you feel you can trust. I'll know by now if I'll be able to help you. And, of course, you don't have to decide immediately, you may want time to go away and think about it.

How frequent will my therapy sessions be?

I usually recommend weekly sessions; however, fortnightly can also be effective if your work or family commitments don't allow for a weekly session.

What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?

Counselling is usually short term and looks at current issues that may be causing you concern. Psychotherapy is usually a longer process that works at a deeper, emotional level. It can help you to come to terms with the past and identify any unhelpful behaviours that may be affecting you now.
