INDIVIDUAL COUNSLLING SESSION: £60

I offer a free initial 20 minute consultation, without any commitment, either by telephone or zoom, so that we can begin to get to know each other and for you to decide if you feel this will be beneficial for you. 

THERAPY SESSIONS ARE TYPICALLY ON A WEEKLY BASIS AND WILL LAST

FOR 50 MINUTES EACH TIME. 

the initial assessment session will last for approximately one hour

I KINDLY REQUEST PAYMENT WHEN AN INITIAL APPOINTMENT IS MADE

TO SECURE YOUR BOOKING.
 

FIRST SESSION

LENGTH OF THERAPY

AT OUR FIRST SESSION YOU CAN START TO TELL ME YOUR STORY AT A PACE THAT FEELS COMFORTABLE TO YOU. IT IS A CHANCE FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT DIFFICULTIES LIFE IS PRESENTING YOU WITH, WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE THROUGH THERAPY AND YOUR EXPECTATIONS.

 

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE FROM OUR WORK TOGETHER TO ENSURE THE APPROACH I OFFER IS RIGHT FOR YOU.

 

I AM VERY AWARE THAT STARTING THERAPY MAY GIVE RISE TO FEELINGS OF AWKWARDNESS, ANXIETY AND NERVES FOR SOME INDIVIDUALS. PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT I AM DEEPLY COMMITTED TO MAKING YOU FEEL AT EASE, RELAXED AND LISTENED TO FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. THIS IS VERY MUCH YOUR OWN SPACE TO USE AS YOU WISH AND I WILL BE GUIDED BY YOU. 

EVERY PERSON HAS DIFFERENT COUNSELLING NEEDS AND THEREFORE THERE IS NO SET LENGTH OF THERAPY. SOME PEOPLE WILL BENEFIT FROM JUST A FEW SESSIONS WHILST OTHERS WILL CHOOSE TO WORK TOGETHER FOR LONGER, AND THERAPY CAN CONTINUE FOR AS LONG AS YOU FEEL IT IS USEFUL. SOME CLIENTS MAY CHOOSE TO RETURN TO COUNSELLING WHEN THEY FEEL THEY ARE READY TO EXPLORE FURTHER. 

 

THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS WE WILL HAVE REGULAR REVIEWS TO CONSIDER HOW THERAPY IS PROGRESSING AND DISCUSS HOW MUCH FURTHER YOU WISH TO GO. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO CONTINUE COUNSELLING, ALTHOUGH I DO ENCOURAGE A FINAL SESSION ONCE YOU HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO END SO THAT TOGETHER WE CAN REACH A HELPFUL CONCLUSION.

 

COUNSELLING IS NOT A QUICK FIX BUT IT CAN BE A LIFE-CHANGING STEP TOWARDS A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF YOURSELF AND THE CHALLENGES OF YOUR LIFE.

GOING ON A JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY CAN BE ONE OF THE MOST REWARDING DECISIONS YOU WILL EVER MAKE.
