I offer a free 20 minute telephone conversation to discuss the reasons for seeking counselling and to answer any questions. I will also share how I work and we can talk about your expectations so you can decide if I am the right therapist for your needs.

All other sessions will be 50 minutes and will cost £60


Our first 50 minute session will be more structured than usual. In addition to some documentation to read and sign, there will be a series of simple questions to answer which will assist me in gaining a greater understanding of your needs. There will also be plenty of time for you to speak about the issues being faced and to ask questions. We will also discuss confidentiality and privacy, both of which are vitally important in the counselling process. 


The number of counselling sessions needed varies between clients and depends on the issues being faced. However, the counsellor-client relationship is a collaboration, so we will constantly review our progress together and you will be very much in control of how many sessions are needed.
