How long is a session and how often will we meet?
I offer counselling sessions of 60 minutes and I can be flexible about how often we meet although it would not be more than once per week. Coaching sessions usually require a longer appointment and my coaching fee is adjusted to reflect this.
How much do you charge and how do I pay?
As a counsellor I charge £45 for each 60 minutes. Some concessions may be available and I am happy to discuss these. I will ask you to pay for each session as we meet and I accept payment by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Do you offer an introductory session?
Initially we will talk on the phone and decide whether to meet and when. At our first meeting we will talk about what has brought you to seek counselling or coaching and you will be able to ask me questions before we decide to continue to work together.
How soon will I be able to start?
Following an initial phone call and if we decide to meet I will try to find a day and time that is mutually agreeable as soon as possible, usually within a week.
Do you have a waiting list?
I do not operate a waiting list and if we cannot find a mutually agreeable time to meet I will try to help you find another counsellor or coach.
Do you have pets?
I don't have a dog, cat or any other pets.
Where will we meet?
When we agree to meet I will give you directions to my consulting address and information about parking if needed.
Do you work with children and young adults?
I am not qualified to work with children, but I enjoy working with young adults who are 18 years old and over. I have completed online MindEd training to add to my professional training and experience in this area. For more information visit the MindEd website.
