Fees?

My fees are £45 for daytime sessions and £50 for sessions which finish after 5.30pm.

I have some concessionary places for those on a low income.  

Location?

I offer counselling in Portishead and Bristol.  I see clients in comfortable, confidential therapy rooms that are conducive to the work.  Please click on the links below for further details.

What happens next?

Your initial appointment is an opportunity for both of us to get a sense of how it would be to work together and to clarify any questions and concerns you may have. I may ask some questions to gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties that bring you to counselling. 

I have a counselling agreement for discussion at the first session which addresses issues such as cancellations, confidentiality, illness, my record-keeping etc. This helps us both be clear about the basis of our work together.

I work to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework for Good Practice. This promotes safe and professional counselling practices.

Telephone & skype counselling

Telephone or skype sessions may be an option if you cannot make it to face to face meetings. If you would prefer ongoing skype or telephone counselling this is something we can discuss at our first meeting but it is helpful to meet face to face initially.
