What happens in a counselling session?
What if I want to cancel or rebook my counselling appointment?
To cancel or reschedule your appointment call my mobile on 0434 865 429. If I have availability and am able to reschedule your appointment during the same week, the cancellation fee will be waived.
These measures are necessary to protect the high level of service I give to my clients. By giving me at least a full working day, you allow me to offer the appointment time to another client who may be waiting for your slot. I appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Do you offer reduced rates or a sliding scale?
How do I book and pay for a counselling appointment?
Is everything I say private in my counselling sessions?
Yes. I belong to associations which have codes of ethics to which I adhere.
Is my information confidential?
Yes it is. Any hard-copy of information is kept in a secure filing cabinet and any digital notes are password protected.
How much does a counselling session cost?
When you phone and talk to me, I will give you my current rates or you can book online.
How often should I attend?
That will depend on your issues and how deeply you want to work. For counselling most people attend weekly or fortnightly for 3-6 months and get the answers they needed. Others feel they need longer. Psychotherapy is for working deeper, which takes longer.
Research shows that long term therapy should begin on a weekly basis and takes longer than counselling. By attending weekly you will experience change sooner.
