Questions and Answers
Q: Why do you offer a discount on the first session?
A: A discounted and non-obligatory first session (counselling, psychotherapy or coaching) is purely for you to decide whether my style of work is right for you.
Q: Will this session oblige me to a set of counselling/psychotherapy sessions or coaching programme?
A: Not at all! Whether you book a whole programme or just one session is entirely up to you. The amount and frequency will vary from person to person and depends on the purpose of the coaching.
Q: Am I obliged to give an answer during or right after the first session?
A: The final decision is entirely up to you and you can take as much time as needed. However, please be advised that I have bookings a few months in advance so delaying with your decision will may delay your sessions as I will be fully booked.
Q: Does it have to last for an hour?
A: No, although in my experience, an hour gives you time to get a feel for future sessions. If 20 or 30 minutes is enough for you, that’s fine.
Q: What happens during the first session?
A: The first session is about getting to know each other. Most of the hour is about you, after I have explained how I work and answered any questions you ask. We will explore your situation together, then we can decide whether to continue.
Q: How much notice do I have to give if I need to cancel session?
I ask for a 48 hour cancelation notice to be fair to other clients. I have a waiting list of people wanting to work with me, so if I have plenty of notice I can help them, too!
Q: Are all our meetings confidential?
My promise to you is everything is absolutely confidential, unless there is something dangerous or a crime has been committed. I want you to feel safe and secure in our sessions, so no judgement, no gossip, no attitude is 100% guaranteed!
Q: How do I know what type of help I need?
Normally at the first meeting I can tell whether long term psychotherapy/coaching is needed or a quick fix with counselling is enough. The best results are usually achieved from a combination of techniques: solving the current, most important problem and discovering where the roots of the problem are coming from. We can then create an action plan together of how to prevent the same problem occurring in your life again.
