The following is a list of frequently asked questions regarding Marriage and Relationship Counselling:
- How Much will Counselling Cost You?
ACCORD is a non-profit organisation, but we do incur overheads in providing our service. To cover some of these cost there is a sliding scale of fees based on income. The cost of each session will be agreed upon at the reception interview. No one is turned away from ACCORD due to lack of money.
- How Often do We/I Attend?
Initial sessions tend to be weekly and last no longer than one hour. Longer breaks occur between sessions as counselling progresses.
- Is the Service Confidential?
ACCORD maintains the highest standards of privacy & confidentiality at all times. Should confidentiality need to be broken this will only happen following a discussion with the client (s). Confidentiality will only be broken to protect a person, including the client, from abuse & danger.
- Does it Matter that We're not Married?
You don't need to be married. Counselling is provided regardless of marital status.
