FAQs

Where do I provide counselling?

I practice in a dedicated counselling room at:

Basepoint,
70-72 The Havens,
Ransome Park Industrial Estate,
Ipswich,
Suffolk.
IP3 9SJ

This location ensures that you have a quiet, private space for us to explore your experiences.

How much will the sessions cost?

My session price is £35 for 50 minutes counselling time.  Payments can be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer.

How often are sessions held?

Weekly sessions are often most effective in terms of building an effective therapeutic alliance, which in turn leads to a positive outcome for the counselling process.

Will I need to agree to a contract?

I like to call it an agreement rather than a contract. In our initial session, I will discuss my confidentiality, ethics, payment, bookings and cancellation policies with you. This will ensure that we work together within safe and clear boundaries. You will have an opportunity to discuss anything that you do not understand.

How many sessions will I need?

Everyone is different and progresses at different rates, therefore I do not have a set number of sessions. Initially, I will usually offer clients six sessions, with the sixth session being a review. If more time is agreed then reviews would normally be held on every sixth session. However, it is your decision on how long the counselling will last.

What is Integrative Counselling?

There are numerous different counselling theories. My core approach is person centred, however, I don’t believe that any one theory can hold the key to all our complexities. I believe an integrative approach allows me to draw from many different theories and ideas in my work.
