What will the session be like?
I offer face-to-face sessions from my office in Westcliff-on-sea, Essex. If you prefer I can also offer sessions online via Skype. During each session we will work together towards the changes that you want to make in your life. I strive to ensure that you feel secure and comfortable in sharing the information you want to discuss in a confidential, safe, non-judgmental environment.
How long will each session last?
Sessions are booked to last for 50 minutes, if you think you may need more time please mention this when booking your appointment as this can often be arranged.
How many sessions will I need
This will be entirely up to you, part of the counselling process is to review how it is helping with the issues you bring to the sessions. It is helpful to have a session once per week initially for 3-4 weeks.
Will my information be kept confidential?
Your privacy is taken very seriously. Any information discussed during counselling will remain confidential; the boundaries of confidentiality will be discussed with you during the first session.
How much will the sessions cost?
A 50-minute session costs £40 for individuals, £50 for couple sessions. Extensions to sessions can be arranged and will be charged on a pro-rata basis. Payment can be made via Internet banking or PayPal. I am currently offering free sessions to NHS & Key Workers (subject to availability).
What are your working hours?
I work Monday to Friday from early morning to 6:00pm. Please let me know what your preferred time/day is and I will do my best to fit you in.
What happens if I need to cancel my appointment?
