What happens in a counselling session?

If you feel apprehensive at the thought of contacting counselling services, it may be comforting for you to know that you are not alone and that many people feel similar fears.

If you do choose to have counselling with me, I hope you will find me to be a warm, understanding, kind and accepting man.
The most important factor in Person-Centred counselling is the relationship itself. I offer a non-judgemental environment meaning you are free to bring yourself as yourself, just the way you are, without fear of being judged, criticised or compared.

Everything that happens within the counselling relationship is strictly confidential and will be guided by you. My part is to go with you no matter how scary it may get so that you don't have to face this journey alone.


Together we can explore your thoughts, your feelings, your fears, your joys, your sorrows, or your anger, in short, anything you choose to bring to your session.

what is counselling

You set the pace

Your counselling will happen at a pace that you feel comfortable with and at a time that you decide suits you. You are in control of your counselling.

At our first meeting I will introduce myself to you and tell you what the counselling process involves.

You will have opportunity to ask any questions about counselling or of my experience and qualifications and we can discuss what it is that you are looking to get from counselling.

Introductory session

Our first session will last approximately 40 minutes and I will give you some literature to take home and read through in your own time.

There is no cost for this initial session and there is absolutely no pressure or obligation to come back if you don’t feel comfortable. You only engaging in counselling if it’s what you feel you really want to do and if you feel 100% comfortable with me.
