If you are thinking of booking a session, then get in touch via email or call for an initial free telephone discussion, during which we can decide whether to progress to your first face-to-face session.
I believe every individual is unique, so I offer a 50-minute introductory session for £35. This initial meeting allows you to decide if you would like me as your counsellor and gives me an opportunity to learn about your and what has brought you to counselling.
If we agree to continue working together, you will usually have a series of planned sessions, weekly or fortnightly.
I ask for payment on booking, to be paid into my bank account, details of which are included on the Information Sheet. Once this payment is received, I will confirm your booking for the date agreed.
If you want to proceed with counselling, sessions cost from £50 per individual 50-min session, couples are £60 per 50-min session. Some clients prefer 60-min, 75-min or 90-min sessions and these are charged pro rata.
I offer a reduced rate of £180 to individuals (£45 per 50-min session, £220 for couples) if you block-book four sessions in advance.
If you find it a strain to afford private therapy, some charities will fund a number of sessions of counselling. It's worth researching if financial support is available. Charities supporting the agricultural sector, ex-services or musicians can be found here.

sessions in advance
Both short and long term therapy is available. To begin with, I may suggest we start with four sessions and then review your progress.
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;
Finding ways to better understand 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 to these you need to talk through or a combination.
Online or Telephone Counselling throughout the UK.
If you prefer to relax in familiar surroundings while we work together, connect while you're travelling, or maybe the distance to get to a counsellor is just too great, then 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!
