Common Questions

Answers for Clients and Their Loved Ones

For your convenience, I've put together a list of commonly asked questions and answers about the therapy process. Whether you're searching for care for yourself or a loved one, I hope this information helps you as you decide on a path towards feeling better.

What type of therapy do you offer?

I'm an integrative counsellor, which means I was trained to combine several approaches, I draw on different models of therapy depending on client’s needs.

I'm registered with BACP and work within their Ethical Framework.  I attend regular supervision, I'm insured and hold an enhanced, up to date DBS check.

Psychologist's Office

Is what I say during my sessions confidential?



Confidentiality in counselling is key to building trust between a counsellor and a client. Your therapist will listen to you in confidence and will not tell anyone else what you say. They won’t discuss you with your GP, employer, family, friends or anyone else without your consent.

However, there are certain circumstances when they may have to pass on information about you. These include:

  • if they believe you or other people are in danger

  • if they’re required to do so by law

  • when referring you to another healthcare professional for help

  • when discussing their work with their therapeutic supervisor (this is standard practice)

Any such disclosures will usually be made with your knowledge and consent, but your counsellor may not always be able to ask you first. You should discuss this with your therapist and agree on the limits of confidentiality for your work together.*
