If you have not consulted a counsellor before it may help you to know what to expect from when you start appointments.

First Appointments
During your first appointment you will be asked to talk about the concern which brings you to counselling and to give a picture of yourself within the context of your life and your relationships. We will discuss whether counselling is the support you need right now. There is no obligation to continue if you decide you do not wish for appointments or if you find that this one meeting has been sufficient.

Subsequent Appointments
With the sense of you and where you are coming from as a backdrop to your current concern and difficulties we will consider if, and how, your past still impacts on the present and how you might move beyond this to a more satisfactory way of encountering life and its challenges.

The work involves exploration of feelings in order to support healing through expression and integration. The subject matter will be led by you the client and we will think together about those things that are important to you.

Number of Appointments
The number of appointment you attend is negotiable and can be reviewed by you at any time. Generally speaking problems which are very focussed might only require a few appointments while deeper inner exploration and change might take longer.

The cost of each session is £40 and are 50 minutes long. A negotiated fee is available for those on a limited income. Please ask.

The fee is payable for all sessions booked including missed sessions and holidays. This is standard practice in counselling and psychotherapy.

Counselling may be time limited to a fixed number, short term or ongoing. This will be discussed in the first session and agreed on an individual basis depending on your wishes.
