When working with a counsellor.......

Each session you attend lasts 1 hour; you and your counsellor will discuss the frequency and times of these meetings as your work through your issues.  If for any reason you have to cancel we ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice.  If you do not attend an appointment without giving reason your counsellor will contact you.  The counselling takes place in a confidential environment, information will only be passed on to others if you give consent to the sharing of information or your counsellor believes that you or another is in danger.  This information will not be passed on without prior discussion with yourself unless to do so would harm another.
