About me and my therapy practice
I am an Integrative professional counsellor with many years of experience and I counsel adults, also young people 13 years of age & upwards. I counsel all clients individually on a 1-1 basis.
The first session is for a reduced fee of £30 and is an opportunity for you to meet with me and discuss what you want, or expect from counselling. A contract is talked through about fees; sessions, cancellations etc. Counselling as I see it is a special relationship with a trained professional person who will help and support you, the client, explore any difficulties/issues in your life in a supportive, warm, approachable, caring way without being judgmental in any way. After the initial session the fee is £40 per session.
