How will I know if counselling is right for me?
I offer an initial assessment session during which time you can ask me any questions you have and decide whether counselling is right for you.
What benefits can I expect?
You can expect to feel completely listened to in an environment where it is safe for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a way you may not have experienced before. The therapeutic relationship is a unique relationship where you will feel valued and feel able to move forward.
How many sessions will I need?
Counselling and psychotherapy work best when you attend for weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes each (60 minutes for couples). You may decide you want to come for a few sessions to gain some clarity and focus for your problems or you may want to work at a deeper level and enjoy the support you will gain from the relationship. Whatever you choose we will work together to agree how many sessions are right for you so we know when counselling will come to an end. By mutual agreement we will arrange a day and time each week committed to you.
What will it cost?
£60 per session for individuals. £80 for couples. Consessions for counselling students. Initial Assessment sessions charged at full rate. 24 hours required for cancellations.
