If you are thinking of booking a session, get in touch via email or call for an initial free telephone discussion.
I believe every individual is unique, so I offer a 50-minute "taster" session for new clients. This initial meeting allows you to decide if you want me as your counsellor and gives me an opportunity to ensure we're a good fit, learn more about you, what has brought you to counselling and how I can help.
If we choose to work together, there are no set number of sessions. Counselling lasts as long as you need it and can be short term, or longer, as you prefer. I am committed to working with clients to achieve their goals as quickly and sustainably as possible.
See my home page for reduced rate fees for young people aged 11 to 17 years.
I ask for payment at the time you book the session. Once payment is received, I will confirm your booking for the date agreed.
After the introductory meeting, individual sessions cost from £65 per 50-min session. Some clients prefer longer sessions and these are charged pro rata. Couples are £75 for a 60-min session or £85 per 75-min session.
I offer a reduced rate (£60 per 50-min for individuals, £70/£80 for couples) if you block-book four sessions in advance.
If you find it a strain to afford private therapy, some charities will fund counselling with me. It may be worth researching if financial support is available. Charities supporting the agricultural sector, ex-services, musicians or people affected by COVID-19 can be found here.

You decide how long your therapy lasts. Some people find 8 to 12 weeks provides sufficient support, whilst others may opt for deeper long-term psychotherapeutic work. Clients often return to counselling if they encounter a new transition, knowing that they have already have an established, trusted and safe relationship with me.
What is covered in sessions?
What we will talk about varies depending on the difficulties you are having, which could include:
Stress or anxiety related to business or home life and how to reduce it
Communication and relationships, making meaningful connections
Adjusting to transitions or traumatic life events
Understanding yourself, who you are and what you want from life
Exploring your gender, your sexuality or sexual identity
Looking at your feelings and needs to help guide your choices
Working with a sense of something "not being right" or feeling misunderstood or stuck
Processing issues arising out of your racial identity
Managing life in a neurotypical world if you are neurodiverse
I use Zoom for online counselling, although I can use other programs on request. Lots of people enjoy the convenience that webcam or telephone counselling offers, and it quickly feels as comfortable as if we're in the same room together.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up an appointment. Prepayment via BACs or Stripe is required to book your scheduled session for online or telephone counselling. I’ll then email you some initial paperwork, such as a consent for services and a client information form, both of which you’ll just email back to me. That’s all it takes!
