Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to be a registered member of the BACP?
This means, I meet their standards for training, supervision, continued professional development and I am bound by their ethical framework.
What is the Humanistic Approach?
It is based on the idea that the individual is the expert in their own lives and inherently capable of their own human potential. A humanistic therapist actively works with the client to explore their own capacity for coping strategies, responsibility and choice.
What is the initial consultation for?
The initial consultation is to determine whether I am the right counsellor for you. We will talk about what has brought you to counselling and possible areas you wish to focus on. It will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions about my approach.
Do you work online?
I offer sessions in-person or online via Zoom, whichever suits you best and is in accordance with the current government Covid-19 guidance.
How long are the sessions for?
Sessions are 50minutes and take place during a regular weekly time slot, either in my practice room or if online, in a quiet space that allows for privacy and confidentiality in your own home.
How many counselling sessions will I need?
It will be dependent on an individual’s situation and what they would like to achieve. This can mean that some individuals will want just a few sessions and some will want several months of sessions. I will discuss this with you during our initial consultation and review with you regularly in order to ensure you are getting what you need from our time together.
