The routes are around 3-4km but can be tailored to your walking speed and fitness levels.

My first session

I offer a 30 minute free introductory meeting face to face, by phone or zoom to find out more about what you are looking to work through and for us to consider if counselling might help support you . We can also discuss how you might like to work and agree availability for sessions.  You'll be under no obligation and it's a chance for you to discuss what you might be looking for from therapy and to see if you feel comfortable with me. If for any reason I'm unable to support you, I'll also help with signposting you to other support services.  


Or 


If you're looking to move straight ahead with counselling we can set up the first 50 minute session. The first session would be a chance to meet and I'll take some background information about you and we can agree areas you are looking to work through and make a plan for your support needs.
