Frequently Asked Questions

What happens in the first session?

In the first session (usually 50 minutes) the counsellor will take some personal details and will discuss your issues and desired goals. The counsellor may inquire about your expectations of counselling and will discuss a contract between you and the counsellor.

How many sessions do I need on average?

Well that is difficult to answer, usually within the first couple of 50 minute sessions, we will be able to see how many sessions are needed, although on rare occasions a single session may be enough.

Is everything I talk about confidential?

Everything that is discussed is confidential, however there are some legal exceptions and these exceptions will be discussed in the first session and/or clearly stated in the contract between counsellor and client.
