Will what I talk about stay between us?

Yes. All sessions are confidential

Counselling is a confidential process and my first consideration is safety, especially yours. If I become concerned that there may be a high of significant harm to you or someone else I will act accordingly, always keeping confidentiality as much as possible.  At our first session we will discuss this in more detail, where I will explain the exceptions to confidentiality in greater detail.

Counselling sessions will be held in a quiet room, away from disturbance or anyone who could accidentally overhear.

Coaching tends not to include the same depth of emotional exploration so it is often possible to meet in a more public place such as a hotel lounge for these sessions.

And of course you are more than welcome to meet with me in the Counselling room.

Can I Have Online Video Sessions?

Yes, via the Google Meet platform.

Video and phone sessions became the norm as the pandemic made it necessary to work remotely and these sessions continue to be popular and effective.

Many clients actively choose online video as it fits in with their busy work and family life. Some people find it more comfortable to be in their own space.

Clients log into a pre-arranged Google Meet session from a quiet space in their home where they feel comfortable and can speak freely and confidentially.

People have used phone sessions when they have to fit them in with a busy work day or if they need to leave the house but cannot come for an in-person session.

Can I Have Face-To-Face Sessions ?

Yes, Absolutely

I hold face to face sessions in my home.

In the interests of everyone's health If you are unwell with a cold, flu or any covid-type symptoms I ask that you consider changing to a video session. This can be a good compromise if you simply feel too unwell to attend a session in person but well enough for a video call.  Please let me know well in advance  so I can either arrange this or reschedule. 


How long do sessions last?

Counselling sessions last for up to 50 minutes.

Therapy works best if you can commit to regular, usually weekly sessions. If you are unable to commit to this, then I am happy to discuss other options with you to meet your individual needs.

Integrated Coaching vs Counselling: What's the difference?

Generally speaking counselling seeks to alleviate distress, help you understand your emotions, how the past can impact the present and enable their healing.

Coaching is focused more on identifying goals and the barriers to reaching those goals.
