Types of Therapy that I Offer
Private Counselling Sessions
Counselling is a very personal experience, and therefore the first meeting is important and helps you decide if you can work together. My first session with you is not a counselling session but an initial consultation to establish what your situation and to help you will decide if I am the right person to help you. There is no obligation to proceed further, there is no charge for this meeting and takes about 30 minutes.
Each counselling sessions thereafter last about 55 minutes. The rate for individuals is £40 per hour. (The rate for organisations is £45 per hour) I will work with you in a block of sessions and then we will have a review session to allow us both to assess where we have got to and whether further sessions would be helpful. I will formulate a working agreement with you which aims to provide you with a structure within which I work and it can be renegotiate or add to as appropriate during the course of the counselling.
