Finding the counsellor you can trust and work with is very important. The relationship is key to this process. I, therefore, encourage prospective clients to shop around, if they can, for counselling is a commitment of relationship on both sides.
I am contactable via the email form and I will email or call you when I get your message as soon as I am able during my office hours 9am-6pm, or if you state you would prefer a call back in the evening I can do that up to 8 pm.
I will book a mutually available appointment day and time for an initial assessment meeting which will last for 50 mins.
This meeting will enable you to get a sense of the counselling relationship and for me to gage if I would be the best counsellor to serve your needs.
When we meet, we can have a discussion referring to your needs and expectations, so we can both get a clearer picture to see if I can be effective to your needs. We can ascertain the length of counselling needed whether time-limited or open-ended. And finally, go over the Terms of Agreement, and to answer any questions you may have.
Professionalism and code of conduct
I abide by the ethical code of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapies (BACP). My work with you is confidential and your identity will be anonymous. I undergo regular supervision in keeping with the ethical code of the BACP, and I regularly take continuous professional development as part of my ethos to keep my counselling practice as alive and vital, in service to my clients.
This also includes a commitment to developing my own self- knowledge and self-reflection.
My BACP registration number is 079458. This is a voluntary registration, only eligible to those who have undergone a rigorous benchmark of training set by the BACP.
I charge £65 for a 50-minute session. For the initial assessment meeting, I charge £65.
Payable by bank transfer.
