Getting in touch and Session Information.
I welcome general inquiries without obligation as an informal chat before we meet can be useful. I am also a member of a local network of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (CAPPP) (CAPPP) to which I can refer for specific needs (anonymously) if you want help with your search.
First contact : 10-15 minutes telephone introduction to clarify what support you are looking for, what I can offer and check out our available times for sessions. We then decide whether to move onto a first session.
First meeting: Exploratory session of 50 minutes £15 to discuss what you need and how we could work together. I will give you information about how sessions work in practice and you can book a return or make up your mind later.
Ongoing sessions of 50 minutes are £40 but a Sliding scale is sometimes available depending on income. Please feel free to ask.
