Frequently asked questions

John J. Nicol. Ba Hons

Person Centred Counsellor





What happens in an assessment session?


This is the first time we meet. It is a free 45 minute session in which we work out if it feels right for us to work together. You have a chance to chat to me and I will explain the process of counselling and how I work. You will have the opportunity to discuss what brings you to counselling and what you feel you need.


How many sessions will I need?


This depends on your reasons for coming to counselling. A few sessions may be enough to support you through a difficult time. Or perhaps you may have issues that could benefit from a long term open ended counselling relationship. Ultimately how many sessions you have is your decision.



Will I have to sign a contract?


 I will ask you to read and sign a working agreement if we decide to work together.

This will inform you of exactly what you can expect from counselling and my service. However you are not commiting to a certain number of sessions and are free to end sessions at any point.
