First Steps

I understand that it can be quite daunting to make the first step towards seeking help. I want to make this first step as simple as possible, so all you need to do is leave me a message over the phone, on the website or email me. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours to arrange an initial free 30 minute session. It is important to me that you feel comfortable and fully informed. This initial session will give us a chance to get to know each other, discuss what counselling is and look at the concerns and issues you want to work on.

 

Our sessions will take place at an agreed day and time. Each session is 50 minutes long and can either be face-to-face or over skype. There are no set rules of how many sessions you will need to overcome your challenges as this varies for each individual, but we will agree an initial number of sessions in our first meeting. This will be included in our counselling contract, which can be changed and reviewed as you move forward. 

 

Fees

Each session is 50 minutes long.

Face-to-face session: £40

Skype Session: £35

 

A limited amount of sessions are available at a reduced rate for those in financial difficulties - to be discussed and decided in the initial session.

Fees can be paid by bank transfer, cheque or cash.

Cancelling a session with less than 24 hours notice still incurs the fee.

 

Location and times

The location for all in person counselling sessions is the Practice Rooms in central Bath and in the Horizon Suite in the Frome Medical Centre.  See here for address details and a map for the Bath location.
