How much are your fees?
I understand how important it is for you to make the right choice when finding a counsellor. Therefore I offer to meet with you at a reduced rate of £20 for the first session. This session lasts for an hour. You will be able to talk about what you would like to look at in counselling and find out more about what I can offer to you. After this session you can make the decision about whether to proceed with the counselling.
Each session thereafter costs £40 and also lasts for an hour.
I offer 2 concession sessions a week at £30 for students and those on a low income. Please ask me for further details on this when you contact me. If there is no place available I am very happy to add you to a waiting list.
I ask for payment in advance before the first session via bank transfer before I can book you in.

I have found that in my 5 years working as a counsellor/therapist that many clients have these issues causing a negative impact on their lives. I am also aware through my own experiences, how they can hamper you from living a fulfilling and satisfying life.
Life experiences such as bereavement, loss, trauma, abuse, relationship difficulties disability, serious illness and injury can leave you with feelings and emotions you are struggling to cope with. Trying to suppress or avoid those feelings often makes things worse.
This is when coming to therapy can give you the space and opportunity to come to terms with what has happened to you and process emotions such as sadness, anger, guilt, fear and shame.
Engaging in therapy will strengthen you ,enabling you to feel more liberated, energised and in control of your life in a positive way.
