The Process

What is the first step?
Once you have decided to embark on your journey, you can email on this website contact form or call me on 07793132050 in order to arrange an assessment session.

Cost and timings

Assessment session £45 - 60 minutes

The fees are £40 - 50 minutes session:  
Monday - Thursday 9:30am - 9:30pm
Friday 9am - 3pm.  

Saturday Sessions £50 - 50 minutes session
Saturday 10:30am - 2:30pm

What happens next?
If this is your first appointment with me, you will be required to complete a form with your general contact details. The assessment session is usually 60 minutes.  Further sessions are 50 minutes.  The assessment session will be an opportunity to explore your reasons for seeking counselling.  Together we can identify the areas you need to work on plus establish whether we are a good match to work together. It is really important to feel like I am someone you can connect with if you decide to embark on your therapeutic journey with me.  It has been documented in research literature that the most effective therapy is based on the therapeutic relationship rather than any specific therapeutic model. If we agree to work together, we will agree a suitable day and time for our regular sessions.  Sessions are weekly and attendance is required every week.  If you miss sessions for holidays and any advance cancelled sessions a fee of £15 is required in advance of your session to hold your regular slot.  Therapy is more effective if there is regular consistency with sessions. 

What is the contract?
Once we are in agreement to work together you will be required to sign a therapeutic contract. This is everything that was discussed in the assessment session in terms of date, time and cost as well as my cancellation policy. When we have both signed this document a copy will be returned to you, for your reference.
