What happens in a Psychotherapy or counselling session?

In the initial session we will discuss what has brought you to counselling and some background to your life.  We will look through a counselling contract together and, if you decide that you would like to work with me, we will book a mutually convenient weekly slot for you.

What types of psychotherapy and counselling do you use?

My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is Integrative.  This means that I have been trained to create and adapt different methods based upon two key principles:  person-centred (which looks at the here and now) and psychodynamic (which focuses in the past).  This allows me to ensure that my work is tailored to an individual's specific needs

How long and how often are sessions? 

Sessions last for 50 minutes and ideally are weekly at a time agreed.

Where do counselling sessions take place?

Counselling sessions take place at The Garden Office, Crudwell Road, Charlton Park, Malmesbury, Wiltshire, SN16 9RX.  Positioned between Tetbury (10 mins) and Cirencester (25mins).

How much does a counselling session cost?


How many sessions will I need in total?

This is dependent on each individual and their individual needs.  I do, however, do a review with every client after 6 sessions.

Everything you tell me is entirely confidential and will stay in the room.  There is a large confidentiality clause in my contract which we will go through together before signing.

Will things I say be confidential
