Some useful information:
Each 50 minutes session costs £65.
Payment for the first session will be taken up front via online payment link to secure your booking.
Subsequent payments will then be taken on the day at the end of each session via cash or credit/debit card (or via payment link if you're having online sessions).
I am also able to accept payment via some health insurance schemes including Bupa, AXA PPP, Aviva, Vitality Health and Aetna.
How to make an appointment
To book a session with me just get in touch however you're most comfortable to do so.
You can call, text, email or complete my contact form, and I will get back to you as soon as you can.
What will the first session be like?
Doing anything new for the first time can be a bit nerve wracking, but talking to a stranger even more so. To allay as many fears as I can I have put together a short blog on what to expect from you first session which you can find HERE.
How many sessions will I need?
This isn't as quick to answer as it might first seem. The length of time people spend in counselling varies greatly depending on lots of different things including what type of issues you want to resolve, what outcomes you want to achieve, and of course how long you want to be there!
Sessions will begin as 'open-ended' which means they will continue until you feel ready to end. However if you have something specific in mind - either a set number of sessions or at goal you want to work on then please let me know this at the start and we can make a plan of how best to meet your needs.
Confidentiality is a key component of any healthy counselling relationship and I want to reassure you that it is something I take very seriously.
99% of the time what you say to me in session remains strictly between the two of us. The only exception to this rule is that if I believe that there is a risk of harm to you or someone else then it is my ethical duty to report that to the appropriate people in order to maintain everyones safety. This however would never happen behind your back and would always be discussed between us before any reporting were to take place.
