How much will it cost?
Costs range between £50 and £60 per session depending on which therapist you see and whether you are an individual or a couple
Counselling and Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to speak about thoughts, feelings and experiences that perhaps have never been discussed openly; therefore confidentiality is an essential aspect of the therapeutic relationship.
All records are kept in line with the BACP Ethical Framework. Any breaking of confidentiality would be only in the very rare event that you or someone you knew were in extreme danger, or when the law required a disclosure. If at all possible this would be discussed with you beforehand.
If I decide to go ahead, what should I expect?
Normally there will be a first meeting for you and your therapist to make contact and to assess what might be most helpful to you. During this initial session, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions and to discuss what happens next.
How do I make an appointment?
If you would like an appointment, ring a therapist on the number specified.
If your therapist is not available to speak, leave a message (which will be completely confidential). Alternatively, you could send an E-mail message.
What do I do if I'm not sure, or would like more information?
