Get in touch and we can arrange a free 30-minute phone consultation and/or an initial session.
Free 30-minute phone consultation
We can arrange to have a short talk on the phone to get a first idea of what I am like, ask questions you have about counselling, check if we have matching availability, and if wanted give me a brief idea of what you are looking for.
The initial assessment session (1 hour, £40) is a chance for the two of us to meet, to get an idea about whether we can work together. There are no tests or questionnaires to fill out but I will ask questions about what has been happening for you, and I will ask you to provide your contact details and those of your GP.
Mostly I am interested in hearing about what has brought you to counselling and therapy at this time, and what your aims might be. I will also talk to you about confidentiality, privacy, how I work ethically, and I will explain my supervision arrangements
In the session we can discuss if the type of counselling I offer (person-centred) is appropriate for you at this time, and if needed we can discuss referring you on to another therapist or service. This pre-counselling session is also a chance for you to find out more about counselling and therapy, and assess whether you’d like to work with me.
All times listed below are for face-to-face sessions. I have additional availability on a Tuesday evening for online therapy.
Thursdays – afternoon, evening available
Fridays – day time available
Saturdays – 8.30am available
