Your questions answered
When is Bumpstead Counselling open?
I offer a range of appointment times, some evenings and weekends included. Please call me to find out more.
How long do the sessions last?
A session is 50 minutes long.
How often are the sessions?
We meet at least once a week, maybe more often if we need to. There is good reason for this and it is better to come weekly for a short time, 6 weeks for example, than to have 6 sessions over a few months.
Where do I need to come?
The Bumpstead Counselling office is upstairs at 4, Charlecote Mews, Staple Gardens, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8SR. An outside bell allows entry.
Can I bring anyone with me, and are there any childcare facilities?
The sessions are for the individual or couple seeking help, but please make contact in this regard, I am committed to equal opportunities and so can be flexible in special circumstances.
Is smoking allowed during a session?
Smoking is not permitted in the building.
What should I do if I need to cancel?
There is a request of at least 48 hours notice of cancellation. If this isn't met a cancellation fee of the full amount will normally be made.
How do I use your telephone service?
We agree a time and you make a payment for the full amount, see below, and you call 07540 725485, and we take it from there. These sessions will also last for 50 minutes.
How much does your session cost?
My current rate is £50 for individuals, £70 for couples per session and £40 for telephone sessions during office hours. I may also be able to offer a discounted fee for concessions, this is normally £35.
I also offer contracts of 6 individual full price sessions which if paid for in advance have a discounted price of £250.
