  • What is Person-Centred Counselling?
    Person-Centred Counselling is a humanistic type of therapy, based on the work of Carl Rogers. ​ You will be accepted and valued. As your counsellor I will always be honest and transparent. I will listen, and not judge. I will be empathic, which means seeing the world and your experiences as if I were you. ​ Through this empathy, respect and congruence, we will build a relationship of trust and support to help you achieve your own therapeutic goals.
  • How Long Will Counselling Take?
    This is something that we will explore together. Each session will last for one hour, but there is no fixed answer as to the number of sessions. You would usually commit to an initial six sessions, and then we would review regularly. It is important to have a safe ending, and so I ask, wherever possible, that you give one session notice if you decide to end the counselling.
  • How Much Does It Cost?
    After the initial, free consultation, each session costs £60.00. ​ For students, trainee counsellors and those on low income, this may be discounted to £40.00.
  • How Do I Arrange Counselling?
    If you feel that 10:ten Counselling might be right for you, the best option is to fill in the enquiry form. You can also email or telephone/text if you prefer. You will be offered an initial, free and no obligation consultation. This will last approximately 20 minutes and will give you an opportunity to discuss your needs and see if it feels right for you.
  • Will Everything I Say Be Confidential?
    Confidentiality is very important to the counselling relationship, and everything you say in counselling will be kept confidential. There are some exceptions to this, such as if your counsellor feels that you, or someone else, is in imminent danger of serious harm. You will be informed of these exceptions before beginning counselling. All your personal information is kept securely, according to the laws on data protection.
  • Can I Bring Someone With Me to Counselling?
    Because counselling is your confidential space, I ask you not to bring another person in the room with you. If someone brings you to counselling they are welcome to wait in our waiting area, or they may prefer to pop to town while your session is taking place. A parent or guardian is welcome to accompany their child to the initial consultation. When having counselling by telephone or online platform, it is important that you are in a safe and private place for each session.
  • What If I am Unhappy with my Counselling?
    Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything that concerns you about your counselling. I want to ensure that you get the best possible service, and will do whatever I can to assist you, including helping you to identify a different type of therapy if you prefer.
  • Are you Accessible?
    I try to provide equal respect and access to all people. I am fluent in British Sign Language, so that Deaf people can access directly without the need for an interpreter. I have undertaken training in autism awareness. Sadly, my main counselling room is not wheelchair accessible, but I commit to find an alternative venue if required. Please let me know if you have access needs that are not being addressed.
  • What About Covid?
    When we meet face-to-face, there are a few adjustments to protect us. Hand sanitiser is available at the entrance to the Bird House. If you prefer to wear a face covering in the session, you are free to do so. I will wear a face covering if it makes you feel more comfortable - please just let me know. The chairs are spaced with Covid in mind, and they - and door handles - are sanitised between clients. Should you need to self isolate, we can move the sessions to Zoom or telephone until you are ready to return.
