How long does a counselling session last?

Each session is 50 minutes long and costs £60.

How many counselling sessions do you advise?
This is flexible and depends on a range of factors. However, I usually suggest a minimum of 8 sessions. I regularly review how sessions are going with clients to ensure they feel that their needs are being met and we discuss how many sessions they feel they need as part of this ongoing review.
How often should a client attend counselling?
This can vary. Some clients feel that they benefit from seeing a therapist every week; some may feel that fortnightly or even monthly works better for them. This can be discussed and agreed between the client, parent/carer and counsellor.
Can parents/carers contact you if they have any concerns?
I am happy for parents to email me at helen@harboroughyoungpeoplescounselling.co.uk if they have concerns, questions or information that they wish to share. However, as counselling is confidential between client and therapist, I may be unable to answer specific questions relating to anything discussed in counselling sessions.
What if I/we feel that counselling isn’t helping?
If counselling needs to cease for financial reasons or because the client feels that therapy isn’t working for them, you can cease therapy at any time giving one session’s notice. However, it is always advisable to give at least two or three sessions’ notice to end the counselling process properly for the client.
Will I be charged for missed sessions?
Cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice will be charged at full cost.
How do you end counselling?
It’s important to end the counselling journey appropriately and not too abruptly. Ideally, the client and I will identify when we feel counselling should end at least three sessions prior to the final session. We will then work together to prepare for finishing therapy, identifying useful strategies and tools that the client can use going forwards.

We rarely value what is free. If we are offered something for nothing, we often think there must be a catch, or that it’s not worth having. After all, why would someone give something away and receive nothing in return? At Harborough Young People’s Counselling I...

The link between Love Island and good mental health

Whatever parents may think of them, young people are often influenced by people in the public eye, such as reality TV stars, actors and pop idols. However, although we may be dubious about their value as role models, some celebrities do use their influence to help the...
