What is Counselling?
Counselling is a confidential service within a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your concerns. You will be offered a first appointment at your convenience. At the end of this first appointment you can reflect on how counselling will help and book any further appointments and where counselling is ongoing, a contract will be made and you will be asked to sign a counselling agreement. This will outline issues of confidentiality and where you stand if you wish to make a complaint.
How soon can I get an appointment?
I offer prompt flexible appointments whether face to face or online or a hybrid of the two to suit your needs..
You do not have to attend on a set weekly basis at a particular time, however, if a certain time and day suits, this can be your time.
What if I feel apprehensive or anxious about counselling?
Feeling apprehensive or anxious about counselling is completely normal. I acknowledge that often one of the hardest parts of counselling is getting yourself through the door. I will help you to feel at ease and her gentle approach will help you to relax and be yourself.
How much does counselling cost and what if I need to postpone a session?
My Current Fees are:
15 minutes introductory consultation online/tele only: FREE
50 minutes assessment and ongoing therapy appointment: £55
75 minutes extended appointment (by request): £85
In the event of a cancellation I require 48 hrs working days notice (Saturday or Sunday not regarded as working days), otherwise I reserve the right to charge the full cost of the session.
My practice rooms are located in Belfast and Bangor and I also offer online counselling.
