  • What to expect during your first session

The thoughts of attending for the first time can for some people feel nerve wracking. You are very welcome to contact me by telephone for an initial phone call to ask any questions you may have.

The first face to face session is an opportunity for both us to explore whether we are a good match and can work together. The first session is at a rate of 50% my normal fee.

We will discuss what brings you to therapy, your needs and expectations.  I will be able to answer any questions you might have about the process and you can get a sense of what it feels like to talk to me.    If you would like to continue together, we will come to an agreement about the frequency of your sessions and fees.  Given that we all have difference circumstances, and in accordance with that I prefer to discuss fees within the first session. I do run a low cost counselling clinic for people on low incomes . My low cost clinic is currently full at the moment.
