Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to come in for a single session without further obligation to see if you can help me?

Sure, we understand, in fact research demonstrates that the quality of the relationship you have with your counsellor is vital for a successful outcome,so you should feel free to come in for a single session and decide.

Some counsellors offer free assessment sessions, do you?

No, counselling is unlikely to be of much benefit to you in a single session. In fact, assessment is an initial stage of the work. Counselling requires an emotional and a financial committment and we try to be straightforward about that.

Do you have confidential premises?

Yes, we have purposely built professional offices (pictured on this website) that are self contained and private.

How can I check the credentials of a therapist?

To begin with, see our website page 'Who are we?' and thereafter you may like to check the main registers on the web. We have included the links to the registers for your ease of use

Do you offer concessions for low wage earners?

Yes, we have a limited number of concessionary places.

Do your therapists subscribe to a code of ethics?

Yes, our practitioners are members of the main professional bodies, and subscribe to the British Association for Counselling code of ethics and as required, have the necessary professional insurance.

Can you see me during the evening after my work?

Yes, many people prefer evening appointments, for example clients who commute
