Referrals - I accept both, self-referrals or professional referrals via GP.
Requests can be made via telephone 07800642303 (Mobile) or email ([email protected]).
I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible if I am unavailable.
Sessions - will be held in a small, quiet and extremely private room
The first appointment may be longer than usual as it will allow time for exchange of information. It is during this session that we would discuss whether counselling is for you.
If counselling is chosen, regular sessions will be offered, usually once a week lasting an hour.
Availability - I am available for daytime, evening and weekend sessions. (Excluding daytime Tues/Wed)
Cancellations, a period of at least 24 hours notice of a change in the appointment time, (if possible) would be appreciated. Please note that late cancellations or "No Shows" will be charged at the full rate. Non- attendance due to adverse weather conditions will not be charged.
Confidentiality - Counselling is confidential. Everything that is shared within the sessions, stays there.
If, however, during these sessions someone appears at risk of harming themselves or someone else, their right to confidentiality will be examined (with them first) and waived in order to find additional help/support for them.
Issues/Experience - I have worked with individuals, couples, adolescents and children with a variety of issues including;
anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, loss, low self-esteem, post-traumatic stress, illness, disability, relationship issues, post-natal depression, family issues, anger management, eating disorders, abuse, bullying, addiction, assault, rape, childhood abuse (physical & sexual), study/work related problems and panic attacks.
Cost - £50 per hourly session (however this is negotiable depending on length and number of sessions required).
