Frequently Asked Questions
How long will a session last?
Usually 50 to 60 minutes
How many sessions will I need?
As many as are beneficial to you. This is something to discuss with your counsellor, as part of an initial assessment. On average our clients attend for between 6 and 12 sessions, but sometimes just once or twice, sometimes 20 – 30 or more.
For psychosexual therapy the assessment process is 3 sessions: an initial assessment session followed by a history taking session and then a feedback session when a treatment plan is agreed if appropriate. After that, the number of on-going sessions would depend upon the treatment plan and could range from 8 to 20, sometimes less and sometimes more.
What if I don’t gel with my counsellor?
Then you can change! We think it’s really important that you feel relaxed and comfortable with your counsellor so we won’t be offended if you decide to look for someone else.
How do I pay?
Most counsellors will ask for payment in advance via bank transfer. Please discuss with your counsellor if this would present any difficulties
