Karen's FAQs

Counselling & PMR


Contact me if you can't find what you are looking for ...

How many sessions do I need?

This is a difficult question to answer as everyone is different. This will depend on many different factors. I normally suggest 6 sessions in the beginning, but I am flexible and will work with each individual client. If you feel ready to finish our sessions before the six weeks is up, then I am happy to finish, but if you feel you need longer than six sessions, we will discuss this and continue with our work together.

HOW WILL i KNOW WHEN i'M READY FOR MY sessions to end? 

This also depends on the individual, but during our sessions we will reflect on the progress you are making and how the counselling has helped you. Once you are ready we will talk through our ending and how you will carry forward the progress you have made.

Will you advise me on the changes I need to make?

No one knows you better than yourself. I will not be advising you on what you need to do, but I will help and support you to make sense of the issues that have been affecting you. We will work together to find new ways of coping and moving forward.

Where are the sessions held?

At the moment due to Covid-19 I will be holding the sessions online or by telephone.

How long are the sessions?

Each session is 50 minutes long.

How often are the sessions?

In the beginning, it is beneficial to hold weekly sessions, but over the weeks we could start to extend them if you prefer.

How often do you offer PROGRESSIVE MUSCLE RELAXATION (PMR) sessions?

I am happy to work with you and arrange sessions whenever suits you.
