HOW TO BOOK YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION
Everything starts with the initial confidential consultation. In order to practice ethically, I offer new clients a reduced cost inital consultation either via online via Skype, by telephone or face to face.
An initial consultation is essential before we embark on our therapeutic journey together. Counselling is a working partnership between client and therapist, it is important that you feel comfortable and able to work with me and vise versa; as the therapeutic relationship is the very core of the therapy.
This consultation will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about counselling, and for me to assess whether this therapy will be the correct intervention for you.
It is my professional right to refer clients on where I do not feel it is appropriate that we work together or if counselling is not the correct intervention for the client.
When making a child counselling appointment, I will need an initial consultation with either the referring parent, both parents or guardian
Reduced Fees for Initial Consultation which lasts 1 hour:
For Face to Face Therapy are £40.00

For Skype Therapy are £30.00
Payment can be made by cash at the end of Face to Face session. Or must be made in advance of an online or telephone therapy session please, by bank transfer or Paypal (details are on the Counselling Contract)
If you wish to book an initial consultation, please contact me via the Contact Page, I will email you a copy of your counselling agreement called a contract. This will need to be filled in, signed & payment made before we proceed.
After our initial consultation we can move on to establish a regular day and time for the therapy sessions to continue.
