Getting in touch.
I welcome general inquiries without obligation as an informal chat before we meet can be useful for both of us. By texting or e-mailing me first you can clarify if I can help with your issues and also check availability. A telephone chat gives me some idea of what you are wanting and gives you a sense of who I am and how I work.
I am also a member of a local network of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (CAPPP) to which I can refer for specific needs (anonymously) if you want help with your search.
First contact:Email me (Side button this page) or text brief details of your issues and what you are looking for. You can clarify days and times available if you are working. I will get back to you to clarify issues. We can then set up a telephone call if needed.
Next contact : 10-15 minutes telephone (see side panel) introduction to clarify further about issues and how I might work with you. You then decide whether to move onto a first session.
First meeting: Exploratory session of 50 minutes £15 to discuss in more depth what you need and how we could work together. You can book a return or make up your mind later.
Ongoing sessions of 50 minutes are £40.
Concessionary rate of £30 available for students, counselling or therapy trainees and low incomes. Please feel free to ask.
Sessions are available on several weekdays.
This includes early morning and evenings for those who work weekdays.
I can also accommodate flexible times and days for people who work shifts.
