Our Commitment.

I can offer a safe and confidential space where we can work together, from within the grounds of my home.

Private off road parking is available.

Short term, time-limited and open-ended counselling is available.

Some people have specific issues that they may only require a very few sessions. Others find that they have less specific goals or more deep-seated issues and find that a longer period of counselling is useful. Every person is unique and the pace at which they work will vary. 

Whilst the total number of sessions doesn't have to be decided at the outset and may become more apparent as the counselling proceeds, typically I find that clients need at least 6 sessions for a successful outcome and a contract is usually agreed for these 6 sessions, with a review after 4 sessions, at the start of your counselling journey.

Please be assured that any agreement for short or long term work would be reviewed regularly with you, to make sure you feel you are getting what you need from the counselling process.

For clients seeking regular therapy, usually on a weekly or fortnightly basis, I offer counselling sessions that last for 50 minutes and cost £60.

I also offer well-being check in sessions which are 60 minutes long and cost £70. These are for clients that perhaps no longer require regular counselling but want to continue to manage their mental health. These are usually on a 4-6 weekly basis.

The chance to ask questions about what is offered, discuss what has brought you to counselling and what you hope to gain; ensuring I am the right therapist for you.

This provides you with the opportunity of 'meeting' me and getting an idea of how I work before deciding to embark on your counselling journey with me. 

Please note you do not need to have this short call if you want to book straight in for your first session.

This first session will feel a bit different to the rest of your counselling sessions.

Our first counselling session together starts with us going over a confidentiality contract so you are aware and comfortable with how I will respect and handle what you share with me. We then move onto an assessment which forms part of the counselling process. This assessment (which isn't as formal as it sounds!) allows me to gain further insight into the specifics around what is troubling you and offers the first step towards exploring your own unique and individual experience of what it is like to be you in this world.

This provides the platform to start building our therapeautic relationship. I believe this relationship is key to successful counselling. I strive to build a positive and empathetic relationship with each of my clients, so that the relationship between us becomes a supportive environment in order to promote your healing, growth and change.

I will always ask at the end of a first session if you feel able to work with me and wish to continue. If you do, this session will end with us agreeing when to meet next. You can of course take your time before deciding what feels right for you to.

Every sessions is to be paid for 24 hours in advance of the scheduled session by bank transfer upon receipt of invoice. This is inline with the cancellation policy.  

Timeslots are allocated on a first come first served basis and are kept by clients for the duration of their therapy.  

Full details around payment are within my counselling contract which I will email to you ahead of our initial session.

Working with me: Text


All missed and cancelled sessions with less than 24 hours notice are charged for in full so are non-refundable. 

You'll find that counselling works best and produce long-lasting change when appointments are regular and consistent.

I will provide you with a written copy of my cancellation policy with full details at the time of booking.
