What can I expect in a counselling session?
Weekly sessions usually last 60 minutes. You'll be expected to work on things outside of the sessions. For therapy to work, you need to be an active participant.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on how complex your issues are, how well you engage with therapy and how long is a piece of string. Every person is different. Your counsellor will regularly review the work with you to ensure that you are in therapy only as long as is necessary.
Will you keep what I say confidential?
Confidentiality is generally assured, unless the court, or your solicitor, has requested a therapeutic report, or you tell us that you or someone else, will be harmed. We will generally discuss this with you prior to informing any statutory services, but we reserve the right to disclose information to the police or social services where we feel there is a need to do so.
