Confidentiality in person and online

This is a confidential and professional service. I adhere to the BPS code of conduct and ethics, and the HCPC code of conduct. Confidentiality and its limitations are discussed in the first session.

When working online regardless of taking all necessary steps for ensuring confidentiality of sensitive material, this cannot always be guaranteed. Please be aware that working online has its limits to confidentiality. It should be noted that the sessions are not permitted to be recorded, as confidentiality of the recordings cannot be guaranteed. If you have any questions, please contact to discuss further.

Technical problems with online counselling:

If you were to encounter technical problems and were unable to contact me online,  you are asked to contact me via phone (+44 7871 955195). Sometimes it may be possible to arrange an alternative time, however, this may not always be available.

First session

Often taking the first step and seeking support is the hardest. I understand that it can be daunting trying to find a therapist who you feel comfortable with and connect with. Hence, I offer a FREE 15 min phone consultation to give you an opportunity to find out whether we would be a good fit to work together.

During the initial consultation session we will talk about your situation, what you are seeking from therapy and your background, as well as how we could work together towards your personal goals for therapy. These can be short-term goals, such as developing coping strategies or having support for a specific difficulty in your life, or goals that require longer-term work and open-ended therapy, such as on-going life situation, childhood trauma or multiple stressors in your life.


You can self-refer by directly contacting either by emailing info@drmarikovanen.co.uk or calling 07871 955195. Referrals from GPs and insurance companies are also accepted.
