The initial session at Higher Ground Counselling will last 50 minutes and will entail getting to know each other and having a chat about how the counselling process works, and what you'd like to achieve. We will discuss your presenting problem(s), and talk about what we can work on for the best possible outcome. Payment for this session must be made at the time of booking, via bank transfer; & is non-refundable in the event of cancellation. or if we do not proceed further.
After your consultation session - the counselling process will begin. Each session takes place in my comfortable counselling room in Huddersfield; or online via Whatsapp video call if you prefer, and lasts for fifty minutes. Payments must be made at least 24 hours prior to our sessions.
A one off session is exactly how it sounds - you just attend once. These sessions last for an hour and a half; and are intended for those who feel that they would just like to feel supported in 'offloading' to someone who can give them unbiased support. These sessions are also good for those who feel that they need to get something off their chest confidentially that they've never felt able to talk to anyone about.
These sessions are not for those with suicidal ideation or plans of suicide.
Cancellation policy All missed sessions under 48 hours' notice will be charged at the rate of £34. This is because once a regular slot has been booked for you, it cannot be taken by another client at such short notice. Counselling is not suitable for emergency crisis intervention. If you are feeling suicidal, please contact your local crisis team, GP, or emergency services.
