FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you are considering taking a positive step and engaging in therapy then you will inevitably have some questions regarding what this entails and how it all works. Below are some frequently asked questions about counselling which you may find useful.  However, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

What are your costs for counselling?

The cost of counselling and psychotherapy support at Insight Therapy Berkshire is £45 for each 50 minute individual counselling session and £75 for each ninety minute couple counselling session.  Fees are reviewed annually in September.

Do you work with counselling students?

I also take on counselling students who are required to be in weekly therapy sessions during the course of their studies.

What is your cancellation notice period?

One we agree a regular time slot for our sessions, the full fee is payable for any missed appointments regardless of when I am notified.

How many sessions will I need?

Once the therapeutic relationship has started we will negotiate a specified number of sessions (most usually six) to begin with.  At the end of those six sessions we will review the work done so far and agree to continue or end.  Some people have very specific issues that can be resolved in a six-week time frame.  Others will need and/or want more time. Sometimes people ask me how long they will need to be in therapy to do the work they want.  My answer is always the same – “I don’t know”.

However when you and I decide to end, the process will be one of negotiation where we mutually agree a contract for ending.

Where are you?

I am based in a counselling and psychotherapy practice called Insight Therapy Berkshire in Maidenhead, located in a quiet area where there is ample and low cost parking.  For more information please contact me via email from my Counselling Directory page http://www.counselling-directory.org.uk/counsellors/jazz-rehal or my telephone on 07518 017077

What about confidentiality?

I take confidentiality very seriously. There may be an exception to this if I believe that someone is at risk of serious harm, but my confidentiality policy will be discussed at our first meeting.

What is your approach to counselling and psychotherapy?

I offer a psychodynamic, relational perspective to my clients which means I primarily work to identify thoughts, feelings and behavioural patterns.  I assess this through the counselling relationship we develop and I use this to understand and offer my clients insight into what relationship they have with them self and to bring to awareness their relationship patterns with others.

How can I get the most from my counselling?

  • Choose a therapist that feels right for you
  • Be engaged in your therapy and the process
  • Know that your therapist is not there to tell you what to do nor are they there to judge you so be as open and as honest as you can
