Free - this will be a free telephone based informal consultation to understand what you are looking for and how I may be able to help you. When and if you decide to go ahead, I will explain the process and send you out further details and information. This is all free and done prior to starting your first session, so that the first session is completely yours and you are not paying for any admin.
For some clients, they may want an open ended amount or unlimited amount of sessions. This allows clients to discuss whatever they need to, in their own time and at their own pace. Psychotherapy can often be long-term, but you, as the client are always in control of how long you want to come for therapy. We will have regular reviews which will help us to plan for future sessions and give us an understanding of how many more sessions you feel you need. All sessions last 50 minutes and will start and end promptly to ensure no client is ever left waiting. Sessions cost £40.
For some clients, they may have something specific they want to discuss and feel they only need a few sessions to achieve what they want to achieve. For other clients, funds may be an issue and knowing that you are only having a certain amount of sessions can help you feel more secure in budgeting for your mental health. If you feel this is the case, by knowing you are only having a set of sessions can help us to cover what is most important to you in the timeframe we have. You are always welcome to book more sessions as and when you need. Sessions cost £40 and will last for 50 minutes
If you are new to counselling and therapy and not sure if it is for you, maybe you would prefer to try a one off session. Maybe funds are tight and cannot invest in your mental health on a weekly basis at this time. No one should not be able to access counselling. I can offer a one off intensive session lasting for 90 minutes for £60. In this session you can off load, unburden, gain some clarity. I can help you understand what support is available and help you make a plan to improve your current situation and mental well-being. I will help you with coping strategies and you can work on these and put them into practice in your own time.
Life can be complicated and difficult at times. We often have so much going on all at once it can be hard to understand what changes we need to make. Because this is so confusing we don’t make any changes and we end up in a cycle of being confused and stuck. A creative session with life stones will help you understand the aspect of your life that needs your attention the most. This will enable you to plan a way forward and take the necessary action that will lead you to feeling unstuck and improve your happiness. Using objects (stones) in a creative way will represent different aspects of your life where I can help you to map out your life in a visual way. From here, you can formulate a picture of your current situation and identify where you may want to make some changes.
