Making an Appointment and our Fees
I know how hard it is just to get this far but this is the first step in your journey.
You are not alone I will be with you every step of the way in a safe, supportive and totally confidential environment, to which I am ethically bound. The focus throughout is on what you feel, what you think, and what you decide.
Please make that first step to take you to a better place.
Daytime and evening appointments between 10:00 until 20:00 on weekdays and limited appointments at weekends.
Ideally, we should meet on the same day each week.
Face to Face sessions are 50 Minutes
Online Therapy sessions are 60 minutes - via Skype, Zoom, Facetime and Microsoft Teams this will be discussed on an individual basis following your initial face-to-face consultation.
I do offer open-ended counselling if you feel it is necessary. This allows you to take it as far as you choose at your pace, I will be by your side for as long as you feel you need me.
An initial 6 sessions are recommended with a review at the 6th session to see if you are happy with how things are progressing.
