The first session is an opportunity for us to meet and see whether we can work together. It is a chance for me to hear what brings you to counselling at this moment and what you hope to achieve. I will also ask you questions about yourself, your upbringing and your history in order to get to know you better.
The first session gives you the chance to see if I might be the right counsellor for you before making any commitment. If I believe that I do not have the relevant experience or expertise to help you, I will let you know and may recommend other counsellors whom I believe might be suitable for you.
If we decide to work together, I will normally suggest an initial contract of six sessions and then in the fifth session, we will talk about how or whether we continue.
The initial session is £50 for a 50-minute session.
My standard fee is £70 for a 50-minute session.
I have a limited number of concessionary places available to clients on a low income.
