If you are thinking of booking a session, get in touch via email or call for an initial free telephone discussion. Private counselling can seem expensive, especially as sifting through years of difficulties may take some time. I am committed to working with clients to achieve their goals as quickly and sustainably as possible.
I believe every individual is unique, so I offer a 50-minute introductory session for £55. This initial meeting allows you to decide if you would like me as your counsellor and gives me an opportunity to learn more about you, what has brought you to counselling and if I can help.
If we agree to continue working together, I will ask you to commit to a series of planned sessions, weekly or fortnightly. Counselling is open-ended and you decide when you want to end your work with me.
I ask for payment at the time you book the session, to be paid into my bank account. Once this payment is received, I will confirm your booking for the date agreed.
After the introductory meeting, sessions cost from £60 per 50-min session, couples are £75 per 50-min session. Some clients prefer longer (60-min, 75-min or 90-min) sessions and these are charged pro rata.
I offer a reduced rate (£55 per 50-min for individuals, £70 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. It may be worth researching if financial support is available. Charities supporting the agricultural sector, ex-services or musicians can be found here.

sessions in advance
Therapy can be either short term or over a longer period. Your early sessions will form a more detailed assessment of your needs.
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 work 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 feelings around your sexuality and sexual identity
Looking for more fulfilment or purpose in life
A sense of something "not being right" or feeling misunderstood or stuck
This is not an exhaustive list, there could be other things which you need to talk through or a combination.
I offer Online or Telephone Counselling.
If you prefer not to meet face to face for whatever reason, online or telephone counselling may be for you. 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 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!
