Starting the process
Typically we would start with a brief phone conversation allowing you time to give some background and explain what support you need. If I feel I can help I will suggest us meeting. If not, I will try and signpost you elsewhere. Often an initial assessment might take place over the course of two sessions; this offers you a chance to talk and for me to understand how counselling might help you. It will also help us to decide whether and how we can work together moving forwards, and if short-term or a more long-term psychodynamic approach might be more appropriate. For children and young people I would usually suggest that parents be present for some of our initial meeting.
My fees are £60 for a 50 minute session. Concessions are available in special circumstances.
If you think I can help give me a call 07901 703400 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org,. We can have a brief chat about what help you're looking for and take things from there.
