  • General procedures: Sessions usually last 50-60 minutes. If you are unable to attend a session, can you please give us at least 90 minutes notice, as this allows us to offer your time to someone else. If you miss a session without giving at least 90 minutes notice, you will be charged for the session at half the normal fee. 
  • Follow up sessions are available if required.
  • In general 3 sessions are usually enough to deal with most issues, however, depending on the situation, together we may find more or less sessions are required.  
  • Remember you may choose to end your counselling at any stage. (Please notify us if you choose to do so)
  • The centre provides a professional & confidential service with limited daily appointments to ensure your privacy. (No waiting room & at least one hour between clients)
  • Questions you may have about the Counsellors: You may ask about our qualifications, experience, preferred ways of working, areas of expertise and professional affiliations. 
  • While confidentiality is respected at all times: There are some times when confidentiality cannot be assured: (1) if your welfare or the welfare of others is at risk.  (2) if there is a court directive, records may be summoned. 
Please note that those seeking treatment who are in a violent relationship, dangerous situation,  or  suffering  depression or suicidal thoughts should contact the relevant authorities that are more qualified to help them...for example Police, Doctor or Mental Health.
