I offer a FREE initial session where we can discuss your personal requirements and see whether we would like to work together. There is no obligation to continue. During this session, I will ask you about your background, lifestyle, family and health to get a sense of what it is like to be you. We can explore what goals you may have in mind and make a contract as to what you would like to achieve. It’s fine if you are unsure of what these are, we can review this as we go along when your needs and goals become clearer.
If we decide we would like to work together, we would usually meet on the same day and at the same time each week for 50 minutes. The duration of your therapy can be agreed with you during your first session and can be reviewed as part of an ongoing discussion about how your therapeutic journey is going.
My session fee is £50 for a 50 minute session and I accept cash, cheque or BACS payments. In some circumstances I may be able to offer a concessionary rate, please contact me for more details.
When you decide to end your counselling I recommend that you give one to two sessions notice (depending on the length of the relationship). This enables both of us to end our therapeutic relationship safely and bring our work to a close.
