What issues can you help with?

Rather than write an exhaustive list of issues that I can help with, and potentially leave something out, I prefer that you contact me to discuss your particular needs.  If I don’t feel i’m able to help you, I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

I'm interested in booking a free initial 30min meeting. What does it involve?

During the initial meeting you will have a chance to tell me what brings you to counselling, the difficulties you are facing and ask any questions you may have.  This first meeting will also give you a chance to see whether you feel comfortable working together.

If i'm happy after the initial meeting, what next?

Once you happy that you’ve made the right choice, simply contact me again and we can find a suitable time to have a weekly session.

You might make your decision in the initial meeting, in which case we would then discuss details at the time.

How many sessions will I need?

It is hard to say how many sessions you will need without hearing the reasons for wanting counselling.  In some cases the short term therapy is all that is required which can be carried out in 6 sessions.  In other cases long term counselling may be needed, which could be up to 24 sessions.

During long term counselling I will carry out regular reviews to establish whether you are happy with the work and if we have achieved or are still working towards our agreed goals.  In some cases we may uncover new goals.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel or rearrange your appointment, I will require 48 hours notice.

If you fail to cancel your appointment less than 48 hours in advance you will still be charged for the appointment.

What if I have arranged a session but fail to attend?

If you fail to attend an appointment you will still be charged for the session.

Do you offer counselling in any other languages?

Unfortunately my only language is English.

Is there parking nearby?

There is on street parking immediately outside the building and it is not usually a problem finding a space.
