Frequently Asked Questions:



Look for a counsellor who is a member of a counselling body i.e. BACP. Counsellors who are Registered or Accredited means they have achieved a substantial level of training and experience which has been approved by their organisation.



Confidentiality is part of the BACP Ethical Framework for Counsellors and Psychotherapists within which its members abide. Utmost confidentiality is a crucial part in building the trusting relationship between client and counsellor. This will be explained in the initial session.



The simplest answer is - anyone.



It depends on the issues brought and your needs, sessions can be weekly or fortnightly but always  the amount of sessions is dictated by you and will be agreed mutually.   Sometimes clients need longer to explore further or more deeply but this is considered along the way and your needs are key to this consideration at all times. You are free to end sessions at anytime although it is recommended you have a closing session with  your counsellor.



This can be a normal feeling but it really doesn't matter how you present your problem. Remember, your counsellor is trained to listen and to ask questions.



No, counsellors neither offer advice or judge you. My aim to is help you to understand yourself so that you are more able to make your own decisions.
