How much does a session cost?
The cost per session is £50 for individuals, and £70 for couples. I offer concessionary rates for students/counselling students.
How long is a counselling session?
Individual counselling sessions last for 50 minutes. Couples sessions last for 60 minutes.
How often would I come to counselling?
Sessions are usually held weekly at the same time. If this might be a problem for you, if you do shift work for example, I will be as flexible as possible to accommodate you and we can work together to figure out how to have the reliability of regular counselling sessions that still fit with your schedule.
Where is counselling held?
The counselling takes place in a comfortable and quiet purpose-built cabin in the garden with direct access from the road through a side gate. It is fully climate controlled with heating and air conditioning. Please note that there are some steps down to the cabin.
For the exact location, please see the Contact page.
I also offer online counselling via a secure online video platform designed for telehealth. If you don’t live locally, this is a great way of accessing therapy from a location that is convenient to you.
Is there parking?
Yes, there is unrestricted free on-street parking.
How long would I come to counselling for?
There is no limit on how many sessions you can have. I usually suggest that we start with 6 sessions and then review how the work is going. For longer-term work we will have regular reviews to check that you are still happy with how we are working together.
Do you offer counselling to children?
I only work with adults; if you are looking on behalf of a child, I would recommend searching for a counsellor who has specific training and qualifications to work with children.
Is what I say confidential?
Yes, everything you say in our sessions is confidential and I will explain more about this in our first session. I also take data protection seriously and am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
