Will I have to tell you everything about myself?
No. You are free to share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. We will work at your pace.
Will you keep my information confidential?
Yes, I am committed to the highest standards of client confidentiality, as required by the code of ethics of my professional organisations. There are some very specific exceptions, which I will explain to you at our first session, so that you can decide if you are comfortable to proceed.
If I come for counselling, is there something wrong with me?
No. Most people experience difficulties or confusion at some point in their lives, whether these be mild or serious, and some choose to use counselling as a way of dealing with them.
Will you tell me what to do?
No. My role is to help you understand yourself better so that you have more awareness of your choices and greater ability to decide what is right for you.
