Welcome to my FAQ Page

Frequently asked questionsHow long do sessions last?

Normally sessions last for 50 minutes. Under exceptional circumstances longer sessions may be arranged.

How frequent are the sessions?

Sessions are usually held weekly at regular pre-arranged times. Again, if required more frequent sessions can be offered.

How long will I be seeing a therapist?

This depends on your particular issues and will be a matter for negotiation between yourself and your therapist. A set number of sessions may be appropriate, or an open-ended arrangement may be more suitable.

I work full time. Can I see my therapist in the evening?

Daytime and evening appointments can be arranged.

Where are the sessions held?

Meetings take place in Little Melton, 3 miles from central Norwich.

I am nervous about seeing a counsellor. Can I bring a friend or family member?

Counselling is about you and it is confidential. You can talk your therapist about things which you have never disclosed to anyone else in an entirely non-judgmental way. As such it is inappropriate for anyone else to be present.

My doctor has recommended that I come for counselling will you report back to him on how I am doing?

By agreement your thrapist may write to your doctor to inform them that you are attending for counselling but the contents of the sessions will remain confidential. Your therapist will not discuss your counselling with any external agencies. (See BACP Ethical Framework)

I am having difficulties with my partner can we come as a couple?

Yes. Couples counselling is offered.

Do you see young people?

Yes clients over 11 years of age can be seen. I hold a current CRB check.

I do not have any particular problems just now but would like to become more self aware. Could counselling help?

A warm and trusting relationship with your Counsellor could enable you to explore deeper aspects of yourself and your place in the world. This could be combined with other personal development activities such as meditation and bibliotherapy.
