If you are interested in experiencing what it might be like working together, then please make contact by email or by telephone. I aim to reply within 24 hours.

Fees

  • Initial consultation: Free
  • Face to Face and Online counselling: £40 for a 50 minute session
  • Telephone counselling: £40 for a 50 minute session
  • Concessions: Negotiable
  • Payment: Cash at each session or BACS payment – details on request

Initial Consultation: 30 minutes. This offers the opportunity for us to meet and for you to get a sense of how I work. It is a space for you to share a little about yourself and to ask any questions that you may have. We can discuss what it is you hope to gain from Counselling and whether it is right for you.

Frequency & Length Of Sessions: Each session lasts for 50 minutes. It is preferable for us to meet at the same time once a week. This has proved more effective than less frequent sessions. However once work is underway and a strong working alliance has been established, fortnightly sessions can be considered.

Availability: I offer short and long term counselling to individuals according to their circumstances and needs. Appointments can normally be arranged at fairly short notice. I am available during the week, including evenings. Sessions are usually held weekly on a set day and time that we agree on. We might agree together to meet less frequently as our work draws to a close. Home visits are not routinely offered, but contact us to discuss your individual needs.

Cancellations: If you need to cancel an appointment please try to give me as much notice as possible. For all appointments cancelled with less than 24 hour notice the full session fee will be applied.

Confidentiality and Ethics: I will listen and talk to you with respect, honesty and compassion. I abide by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. We will speak in strictest confidence unless someone is at risk of serious harm, or I am require to disclosed by law under the Prevent agenda. (https://www.bacp.co.uk)
