Frequently Asked Questions...

Appointments and Availability

Counselling appointments are known as sessions and are approximately 60 minutes in duration. I offer morning, afternoon and evening sessions. You can arrange a session by contacting me on 087-6674084. Alternatively you can contact me by email to: cormac@mcquaidcounselling.ie

Cost of Therapy

The regular fee for individual therapy is €50 per session. Please contact me to discuss a fee for delivering group therapy, talks, workshops or training days.

Frequency of Sessions

Because of each person’s individual circumstances, it is difficult to exactly predict the amount of therapy sessions needed. Usually, I suggest that attending 3 - 4 sessions may help you to decide if our work together is beneficial to you. Ultimately, you will decide on the amount of sessions that you wish to attend and I will respect your right to end therapy at any stage. Attending counselling fortnightly is a resourceful way to manage the financial cost of therapy.

Cancellations

Due to the nature of my work, I require 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your session. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will incur a cancellation charge of fifty percent of the session fee.


Confidentiality

Privacy and confidentiality are standards that are central to my practice. However, as a mental health practitioner, and a citizen, I am subject to the law and my practice must conform with the law. Limitations pertaining to confidentiality are fully explained during the first therapy session.
