Frequently asked Questions (FAQS)

Making an Appointment

We would have a brief discussion so I could understand what you need and for me to explain how I can help you.

Yo can contact me by telephone, email, Skype or through the on-line chat facility.  If you are happy, we can go ahead and arrange the first session. I make every effort to arrange the first session as soon as I can.

Most people are anxious before the first session but feel reassured by the end.

 

Price and Payment

I charge on a sliding scale, per session, depending on how much you earn for a 60 minute session.

0 – £30,000 = £35.00

£30,001 – £50,000 = £40.00

£50,001 + = £50.00

Concessions available for the unemployed and those without a disposable income. 

Cash is the preferred payment. I also accept cheques. Payments can be made in advance through BACS and Paypal. 

 

How long do you see people for

I offer both short term brief therapy and longer term therapy.

As I work ethically, I will not encourage you to stay in the counselling process longer than necessary and will be open and honest with you.

Your journey is a process, not an event. I will work with you at your pace, and won’t push you.
