Practice description

I work in very brief (up to 6 sessions), medium term treatment (16-20 sessions) as well as on-going, long-term sessions. This will depend on you and your situation, any previous therapy you may have had, as well as how you respond to therapy. We will discuss this and agree the most suitable plan.

I currently work mainly online or by phone but I am offering face to face counselling also, in a good-sized, ventilated room. The practice where I have a room has Covid secure measures in place and surfaces are cleaned several times daily.

I usually see clients once a week at the same time although some people may wish more. Again, this will be agreed at the outset, along with cost and terms of engagement with therapy. Some concessions are offered for students and those in training.

My first session

I offer an initial, 30 minute telephone session free of charge. This allows us to establish if it is likely we can work effectively together. In this session we will agree if we are going to work face to face or online. In our first full session, we will talk about what brings you to therapy and what you would like to focus on in the work. We can talk about your expectations and length of treatment and agree a time and cost. Some concessions may be available for online work only. Also in the first session, in addition to your contact details, I will ask you for the contact details of either your next of kin or your GP and  of any medical conditions/medications. Remember you can have your free, trial session before you decide if you wish to go ahead with therapy. For clients who wish to claim under their employer or an insurance policy, please have your reference no available.
