What is the cost of counselling ?
My fee per 50 min session is:
In person in Charlton £ 60
Online £ 60
Telephone £ 60
How long will it take till I feel better?
That really depends on many factors like your presenting issues and underlying issues and whether you have previously engaged in counselling and other activities that raise self awareness and heal trauma. Many people feel better just from beginning or continuing their self growth journey.
Do I have to subscribe to a number of sessions?
I offer an open ended service. You may continue with your sessions for as long as you find them beneficial. My expertise includes short and long-term counselling. It is usually recommended to have an ending session if you have been coming for some time.
What is the cancellation period?
Counselling is an ongoing weekly commitment. You may discontinue your weekly commitment with a minimum of 48 hrs notice at any time.
An ending session is usually recommended.
Is counselling right for me?
If you feel drawn to counselling at this time, then it probably is worth giving it a try. The first session is also an assessment where you can see counselling is like and how well we can work together.
What about COVID?
During the period of severe lockdown restrictions I had to limit my offer of sessions to online/ telephone only, for existing and new clients and used to opportunity to engage in comprehensive training in working in that way.
Now living with Covid has become the 'new normal', I am able to offer face-to-face sessions again for those that prefer this way of working, as well as a blended approach where appropriate.
I have increased the distance of the chairs and have a hygiene regime for high touch areas between all sessions.
For those that prefer to continue their sessions online and telephone I continue to offer sessions in this way .
What time should I arrive for my appointment?
Please arrive on time for your appointment and no more than 1-2 mins early, as there is no waiting area.
For online appointments we will agree the online platform used and you will be sent a link beforehand. Please make sure you install the free app well ahead of time and make sure you can access it.
For telephone appointments you will be given a phone number to call at the right time.
