I am open and seeing clients face to face. All safety and cleaning precautions are being taken.

What happens in the first session

The first session will be 50 minutes and it will be a chance for us to get to know each other and for you to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you and we can work together. There is no obligation for you to work with me. I will introduce my written contract which provides more detailed information. Confidentiality is paramount and further details are listed below. For young people I require a short assessment which will be completed during the first session. During this session we would discuss your requirements, which may include short term therapy of 6/8 weeks or longer term therapy.


Counselling provides a secure and safe place to talk about your concerns and confidentiality is important. However there are limits to confidentiality and in the case of a disclosure concerning:

  • Acts of terrorism
  • The disclosure of incidents within the remit of the Children's Law
  • Money laundering
  • Drug trafficking

In these instances I am required to breach confidentiality. I would initially speak to you about my concerns and such disclosures will be passed to the relevant authority with (hopefully) your consent.
