I trained in an integrative approach, which uses the relationship between client and counsellor as the base for the journey together. Depending on the client I draw from different approaches, such as person-centred, mindfulness, cognitive and solution-focused theories, as I don’t believe that one approach fits all clients or all issues.
Our first meeting is a chance for you to tell me more about what brings you to counselling and what you expect to get from it. It also gives me the opportunity to find out a little bit more about you and if we think we can work together.
If we decide to continue we can set a number of sessions or work with an open end. Sessions are weekly at the same time, last for 50 minutes and cost £60, although some concessionary rates are available for the unwaged, people on a low income or students. The initial meeting is £25. Cancellations of more than 48 hours notice will be charged at £30 and missed or cancelled sessions of less than 48 hours notice will be charged for at the usual rate.
