Following your initial contact, Julie will telephone you for an informal chat enabling her to ensure she has adequate experience to work with your concern or issue. It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have regarding the counselling process before arranging your first session.
The first session will be a consultation during which Julie will ask questions, complete paperwork, and ascertain your expectations of counselling and what you wish to achieve from counselling. Once again it is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Should we then agree to work together the frequency and amount of sessions will be negotiated and you will be asked to read and sign a contract.
The next time we meet will be your first counselling session.
Each consequent counselling session is arranged by appointment, lasts 50 minutes and normally takes place each week.
Julie recognises the importance of confidentiality and discretion; she also understands you may not wish to have any reference to counselling on your employment or GP records. When you arrange counselling privately (apart from exceptional circumstances) she guarantees details of your appointments or anything you discuss during sessions will not be disclosed.
In order to maintain confidentiality Julie will only leave a message with your permission. When contacting Julie by email or telephone please advise her as to whether or not you would like her to leave a message.
