About me and my therapy practice

Hi and welcome.

My name is John and I have been working in mental health now for over 10 years with both adults and young people and alongside my counselling practise I work full time for MIND.

I am passionate about mental health and regardless of age, sex, gender or ethnicity, I am able to offer you a safe and supportive space - no matter what you are going through.

Counselling can be daunting and feel alien at the start. It is therefore important that you find a counsellor who fits your needs and meets your expectations. I offer an initial consultation and assessment for £25 so we can explore the options that are best suited to you.

Practice description

I offer two options for therapy; face to face & online

My first session

The first  session will last for up to 50 minutes and will be a chance for us to explore your situation in some more detail. 

I will ask some questions to get a feel for what brings you to counselling and there will be time for you to ask me some questions.

I will talk a little about how I work and run through some housekeeping paperwork.

By the end of the session we can both look at what the options will look like moving forward and whether counselling is for you.
