APPOINTMENTS AND FEES

Appointments

 

It is important that you feel comfortable and have the time to choose the right counsellor for you, therefore if you choose to meet with me for an initial meeting, we will talk a little bit about you and your history, why you are here and what you would like to achieve from the sessions.

 

At the end of the session we will discuss if you feel that we can work together therapeutically, addressing your concerns and needs, I may ask you to take some time to think about this and let me know within the week how you feel about continuing together. 

If you are happy to continue, from there, we can book another appointment to move forward with your counselling, usually on a weekly basis

Telephone Counselling

If you would prefer telephone counselling, we would have an initial conversation as above and see if having telephone counselling may be right for you, and to see if you would be happy to continue working with me via telephone. 

If so, as above, we can look at booking another appointment for you to continue your counselling journey, again, usually on a weekly basis. 

Walk and Talk Counselling

 

I offer 'Walk and Talk' sessions in some of our local parks, Royal parks and natural areas. Being outside with nature can be an organic place to reflect and explore as well as heal and help you balance emotionally. I am happy to walk, talk and listen in all weathers. 

As above, we can look at booking an appointment for this service.
