What do I do
I offer face to face counselling and on line sessions by zoom and skype.
Sessions last fifty minutes and are usually held weekly, at a convenient time for both parties.
Some people find that just a few sessions are all they need, other people value therapeutic support over a sustained period of time. The therapy will be regularly reviewed as we go along.
After your initial contact (by phone or e-mail), we agree to meet for an initial meeting. I find it is generally easier to make this arrangement over the phone.
The initial session is an opportunity for you to tell me more about yourself and your current difficulties, and to check if you feel comfortable with me. It is also a chance for me to check that I am able to offer you the support that you are looking for.
If at the end of this we are both happy to proceed we can arrange further sessions, or you can take time to think about things further. You are under no obligation to continue.
It is important to find a therapist you feel at ease and safe with.
What does it cost
Each session costs £50.00
Depending on availability some lower cost sessions can be negotiated.
Initial consultation £25.00
As well as our contact time, this fee includes pre-and post-session preparation, personal indemnity insurance , administration costs, and the cost of professional supervision.
How to get to me
I work from a room alongside the river in Shoreham-by-Sea.
Parking is free and the location is well served by buses and a railway service (approx 15 minute walk from the station).
