How much are counselling sessions and what methods of payment do you accept?
Initial counselling sessions are charged at £25, and after that sessions are £55 each. I accept card payments, cash, and bank transfer.
Where do you see your clients?
I work from my counselling room at my home in Culvert Lane, Uxbridge, which has free parking in the road outside (there are no parking restrictions). The location is about 20 minutes’ walk from Uxbridge Underground Station.
How long are counselling sessions and how often are they?
Both initial sessions and all appointments after that last for 50 minutes. I often see people on a weekly basis and can reserve a regular time for you, however both the frequency and appointment times may be varied depending on what works best for you and on our mutual availability.
What times and days can you see people for counselling?
I can offer a range of appointment times during the day and evenings Monday-Friday – please contact me on 07900 257150 or at email@example.com to discuss making an appointment.
What if I have mobility difficulties/identify as having a disability?
If you have mobility difficulties or a disability I would be happy to discuss in advance any particular needs, concerns, issues or questions you might have. My therapy room is on the ground floor with a single step to access the building, and a single step to access the toilet which is also on the ground floor.
What does the ‘Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling’ and ‘Integrative Studies’ named in your qualifications mean?
This means using a range of psychological theories and research findings to help find the best approach to helping you with your difficulties. ‘Integrative’ means using different approaches together – often finding common ground about human problems between different perspectives – and ‘psychodynamic’ means looking at how childhood experiences may impact on someone’s present difficulties including in ways of feeling, thinking and being in relationships. I try to take into account all aspects of who you are and the issues which are affecting you, including your social, cultural and ethnic background where relevant.
What is your cancellation policy?
I ask for 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a session, although if I am able to rearrange it within the same week I will be pleased to do so.
What if I have a query, concern,comment or complaint?
I actively encourage clients to give me feedback about the work we are doing and the service I am providing, and to let me know if they have any queries or concerns so we can consider the issue together. I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and for more information about this and about professional conduct and the organisations’s complaints procedure please go to www.bacp.co.uk/prof_conduct/
