I have listed below some of the questions that I frequently get asked. I hope that my

answers help you with your decision in approaching me for counselling. Should you have

any questions that I have not listed, or if you want to chat through some of my answers,

please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

 

HOW LONG WILL I NEED COUNSELLING FOR?

That depends on you. Some people only attend for a short time i.e. 6-8 weeks, whilst

others prefer longer. You, the client will be in control of how long you attend for.

 

WHERE WILL I BE SEEN?

I see clients from my own home in Musselburgh. This is easily accessible by car, train

or bus. Parking is free and easily available outside my house. There is a direct bus

route to and from Edinburgh or East Lothian very close to my house. A train station

is within walking distance from my house.

 

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

A fee of £40 is paid for a one hour counselling session.

This fee is paid at the end of each session.

 

WHEN CAN I BE SEEN?

I offer appointments during the day and in the evening so hopefully we can find

a time that is convenient for you

 

WILL I NEED TO WAIT TO BE SEEN?

I will try and see you as I can and I aim to offer a first appointment within a

week of you contacting me.

WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?

Everything you bring to counselling will be confidential between us. I am however

required to attend a supervisor once a month. I speak to my supervisor about the

work that I do with clients. It is my supervisor's job to ensure that I am working

properly and ethically and ultimately has your best interests at heart. My supervisor

is bound by strict confidentiality also. I work and adhere to the NCS code of Ethics.
