Frequently asked questions about Spurgeons Counselling Services
What is counselling?
Counselling is a form of talking therapy whereby an adult or child meets with a trained professional counsellor to talk about difficulties or problems that they are experiencing in their life.
How long do you work with clients?
There are no restrictions for time spent with a counsellor, it is very client-led so counselling continues for as short or as long as needed. On average a client is seen for around 12 sessions, but this can be much shorter or longer depending on the complexity of issues involved.
Are parents notified of what is discussed in a counselling session?
The child is entitled to confidentiality in the same way as an adult client would be, however the child is free to discuss anything from the session with their parent or carer. If the counsellor identifies issues that would be healthy for the child to discuss with their parent they would encourage the child to do so.
