What To Expect

During an initial half-hour session, Jess or Denise will briefly introduce themselves and explain their approach to counselling. We’ll then discuss what you’d like to get from Therapy, and how we might work together.

If you decide to take up weekly counselling with us, we ask you to sign a brief contract which outlines our commitment and responsibilities including Confidentiality, Fees and Terms. Each subsequent session lasts for 50 minutes.

As trained listeners, we are able to reflect and facilitate thoughts and feelings in a way we hope proves useful for you. Additionally, your Kernel Counsellor will always act within the professional guidelines laid out in the code of good practice and conduct by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); receiving regular Supervision and Continuing Professional Development Training.
