I offer short and long term counselling sessions. Short term can
be from a minimum of 9 sessions upwards, and long term can be for several
months or longer. Sessions last 50 minutes. In order for counselling
to be effective and therapeutic, you do need to be comfortable with
your counsellor. Therefore our first session is an assessment for both
of us to see if we can work together - whether I am the right cousellor
for you and whether I am able to work with you. I may suggest referring
you to another colleague or organisation.
we agree to meet it is important that we meet regularly and that you
attend and complete the sessions. If you do not contact me and miss
two sessions in a row I will not be able to keep your space available
to you. If you feel that you want to end the sessions early, I suggest
that we meet for at least two sessions to work through the ending process
and review the work completed.
session fee: £30. Thereafter my fee is £45 per 50-minute
session for individuals and £55 for couples, paid at the beginning
of each session either by cash, personal cheque or internet banking (including Paypal).
Everything that happens in the sessions is confidential between us.
I am required by my professional body to have regular supervison and
I will sometimes discuss issues with my supervisor where your details
are anonymous. The only time I will break confidence will be for ethical
reasons, for example where it becomes apparent that you or other people
are at risk of harm. I will of course endeavour to tell you about this
I offer private practice from my home, which is in a quiet neighbourhood on the edge of Redhill and with easy access by road to Reigate and surrounding areas. There is parking and the chance to have a reflective walk around the nearby lakes before or after a session. Because my practice is in my home, please can you arrive at the agreed time, as I will not be able to greet you beforehand.
The entrance and counselling room is on the ground floor, providing disabled access.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
