Frequently asked questions

Updated: Feb 1, 2018

I am not sure if counselling is what I need.


It is important that you feel comfortable when working with a counsellor, the initial appointment will gives us both an opportunity to get a sense of each other and for us to look at what it is you would like to explore within the counselling. This session may help you to decide whether counselling feels right for you and if you decide you would like to continue working with me we will agree to meet on a regular basis, ideally weekly.


How long is a session and how do sessions work ?

Sessions usually last for one hour although extended sessions may be booked.

We then have an initial assessment session and after that I will be able to tell you how many sessions I think you will need and we decide regularity of sessions and what you would like to achieve.

How much does it cost

I run a sliding fee scale depending on your ability to pay. This starts at £40 and goes to £60 for individuals, and at £50 to £70 for couples.
There are cheaper rates for people on benefits.
Some people like to pay ahead when they are paid, others pay in cash or cheque at the session, and others using electronic banking. If you are getting support from an organisation which pays your fees, I will invoice them at stages through the therapy, but you may have to pay an excess.
I do work for Bupa and for various insurance agencies, and Employee Assistance Programmes and can take referrals for teenagers from the Family Counselling Trust, all of which can help with fees.

Will what I say be confidential

I abide to the B.A.C.P. Code of Ethics and Practice I am therefore bound by its ethical framework. I'm committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment and regularly have supervision where I may discuss aspects of our work where I need clarification of the way I work with you, however I never disclose client details or any information which could identify my clients in any way. The only time I would break confidentially would be around issues of safe guarding.

What time can I get an appointment

I am able to offer flexible appointment times, including evenings. I work in Dorchester on Mondays and Tuesdays, Yeovil on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Bridport on Mondays, Tuesdays and evenings. I can offer some Saturday appointments.

What if I need to cancel my appointment

If you are unable to make an appointment please let me know as soon as possible, if less then twenty four hours notice is given 50% of the full session fee will be charged.

How do I make contact

Please feel free to call/text me if you would like further information or to make an appointment, all of my contact details are confidential so please feel able to leave a message if I am unavailable to take your call.
