FAQS

What is Integrative-relational counselling?


Integrative-relational counselling brings together a range of different counselling and psychotherapeutic theories and practices from a relational perspective. It is an effective form of counselling because given the diversity and complexity of human beings there is no single specific approach that is suitable for all.




What happens in the initial consultation?


During our initial 15 minute telephone consultation we will briefly discuss your current circumstances and best hopes from counselling. I would hope to be able to answer any questions you might have.




What happens at the first session?


In our first 50 minute session we will discuss your current circumstances and relevant past experiences in more detail. The session is designed to give us both more of an idea whether we can work together to achieve your best hopes for the sessions.




Are the sessions confidential?


As a registered member of the BACP I offer confidential sessions in accordance with the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Counselling professions. https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/ethical-framework-for-the-counselling-professions/




How many sessions will I need?


It’s recommended to start with a minimum contract of 6 weekly sessions. However, this is dependent on individual circumstances and would be discussed at our first session.
