FAQs

What can I expect in a counselling session?

A session usually lasts 50 minutes, although longer sessions might be considered useful and we can negotiate this prior to beginning counselling. I would recommend weekly sessions at first, but we can discuss any number of appointment options during our initial meeting. 

How do I know if I need counselling?

Only you can decide whether you wish to try counselling or psychotherapy. Just talking to someone confidentially who is not a friend or family member can make all the difference. Counselling or psychotherapy provides a regular time for those in distress to explore their feelings and talk about their problems. A counsellor can help you develop better ways of coping, allowing you to live the life you deserve.

What benefits can I expect from working with a counsellor?

A number of benefits are available from participating. Often it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Counselling can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from counselling depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn.
