Our first step is to arrange a free consultation session to see if we might be able to work together. During this appointment you can tell me what brings you to therapy and I’ll tell you whatever you’d like to know about the process. Feel free to size me up!
If you do wish to go ahead you will be offered an appointment held at the same time on the same day each week so please consider if that is practical for you. A session runs for 50-minutes.
I’ve also put together a short guide which you might find handy in preparing you for our first session.
- Individuals £50
- Couples £80
- Friends/ Family £80 – please note this kind of counselling is not to be confused with family mediation and I do not offer legal advice
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the government restrictions on social distancing, all my sessions are now online or via telephone until further notice.
Our work together is open-ended and you choose when you feel ready to finish. You are not financially tied into sessions or required to pay anything upfront.
One of the first sensible questions people often ask is how long will I be in therapy? It’s impossible to answer this as self-exploration is a journey and not a destination.
It is above all a process.
Whilst it can be helpful to have an idea of what you’d like to work out and some tangible goals, not everyone knows what’s troubling them and that’s totally OK too.
I am often wary of practitioners who claim to offer quick fix solutions to lifelong problems, which usually only offers temporary feelings of relief.
It takes time, effort and personal commitment to undergo developmental change (I call this ‘unlearning’) and your therapy space will be yours for as long as you wish.
We are not broken machines with faulty components to diagnose and fix. We may be hurt but we can heal. Be patient with yourself and the process.
