Sessions are by appointment only and last for one hour. Your initial session will help you to decide whether to proceed to further counselling and, while it is not necessary to commit to more than one counselling session, it is not realistic to expect that a single conversation with a counsellor will completely resolve the problem.
Counselling sessions are entirely confidential and you can be assured that no one else will know that you are in counselling, unless you choose to tell them. No information about you will be shared with anyone. However, if I feel that you are in danger of harming yourself or others, I may suggest talking with your family doctor or another professional in the healthcare field.
