opt 4 counselling


• Where are you based?
I am based in Dukinfield, East Manchester, UK, which is located conveniently for Stalybridge, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Hyde, Denton, Mossley, Mottram and Stockport.

• Are your premises accessible?
The room I use is on the ground floor, but there is a small step at the threshold of the building that you should be aware of.

• How long will my counselling sessions be?
All my sessions are 50 minutes long whether they are face-to-face, online or on the telephone.

• How much are the counselling sessions?
Sessions are charged at £45. Student discount is available to those in higher education at £35 per session.

• How do I pay for my sessions?
Once you have booked your first session, I will send you bank details so that you can make a bank transfer ahead of your appointment.

• How do I rearrange or cancel a session that I have booked?
Please contact me at least 24 hours in advance either by phone on 079079 87046 or via email at opt4counselling@gmail.com

• How often will I need to have sessions?
In order to build our relationship and get the most from our time together, I would recommend having regular weekly sessions to begin with. As we work through your issues, you may feel confident to reduce this frequency, particularly as we work towards completing your therapy.

• How many sessions will I need?
This very much depends on you and how much you want to get from your counselling. Many people that I’ve worked with, have found that they are ready to move on after around 6-12 sessions. Some people find as few as 2 or 3 sessions can be hugely beneficial. I am also happy to work with you in the longer term should you wish. Sessions may be booked individually without any obligation to commit to a specific number.

• What if I want to have my sessions online rather than face-to-face?
I use the Vsee app for my online video counselling. Once downloaded, the app is very easy to use and you will be able to join me with the click of a button. It is important that you are alone and cannot be overheard during our sessions, so that your space is confidential as it would be if you came to see me face-to-face.
