Psychotherapy and Counselling Brighton.

Frequently Asked

Questions

How many sessions should I have?

This depends on your own needs and what best is going to suit you. We can discuss this at the initial session or over the phone if you prefer. People often come weekly but fortnightly is also possible. The time duration also depends on your own particular circumstances and is something we can discuss. This could be for a set amount of sessions agreed on at the beginning or it could be more open ended.

How long is a session?

Usually this is an hour but people sometimes prefer longer sessions and this is also possible.

When are you available?

I mainly see clients during the day time on week days but there are also some evening slots available.

Where are you based?

I am based in 7 Dials in Brighton, about a 7 minutes’ walk from Brighton station.

Is there parking nearby?

Yes there is on-street parking but it is charged for per hour.

Is there disability access?

Unfortunately due to it being on the second floor there is no specific disability access.

How much do the sessions cost?

There are sliding scale payment options. You choose which rate to pay based on your circumstances. The full rate is £75 for an hours session. The lower rate is £45 for an hours session. You can also choose to pay an amount in-between these rates. There are also block booking payment options.

Do you do sessions online?

Yes. Sessions can be don via Skype or phone if you are not local.

Can I cancel a session once booked?

Yes but at least 48 hours’ notice needs to be given otherwise the session is still charged for.

Are you qualified?

Yes I have a UKCP and BACP accredited diploma and a Masters degree in transpersonal psychotherapy and counselling.

What is your therapeutic approach?

My approach is to create a very safe space in which you feel able to be yourself fully.  My style is to listen deeply and to reflect back anything that may be helpful to you. I will always be guided by you and your process. My way of working is mainly transpersonal and integrative. Transpersonal means a recognition of the spiritual dimension of our human experience. Integrative means utilising various approaches to what is suited and needed in any particular moment.
