We will first meet for an initial one hour appointment to help you decide whether you would like to proceed. This can be a good time to discuss what brings you to counselling and/or one-to-one mindfulness training. It is also a valuable time for us to discuss any expectations you may have and get a sense of what it would be like to work together.
We would normally meet for an hour each week. Sometimes people prefer to come fortnightly – we can discuss this in our initial session if you feel that this option would be better for you.
The content of our sessions is confidential. The only exceptions are if I am concerned about you harming yourself or another; or if in my opinion there is a child protection issue. I am also legally required to report any involvement in or knowledge of serious criminal activity, including terrorism, drug trafficking, money laundering.
If I haven’t worked with you before, I offer a discounted fee of £30 for the initial appointment. All other individual sessions are £45 and last an hour. Fees are payable by cash or by advanced bank transfer.
I request at least 24 hours notice for any cancellation or else you may be charged the full fee.
