A Flexible Approach to Your Sessions

 

As someone who regularly sees the benefits of counselling for clients, I believe that having fulfilment and happiness in life is much too important to leave to chance or the hope that maybe things will change in time.

 

If you'd like to give it a try but don't know if you want to commit, that's fine. I offer an optional three-step process to all my prospective clients. All you need to do is email me, or pick up the phone for a quick chat to find out if and how I can help you.

I currently offer sessions online via Zoom and in-person at different times during the week.

Most clients see me for sessions booked weekly/fortnightly at a regular time over a period of weeks or months. Counselling is a process and every client/ couple is different so the number and frequency of your sessions will depend on you and your therapeutic goals. I typically recommend an initial commitment to 6 hour-long sessions following the assessment and this may be enough for you. Many clients choose to continue with additional sessions, however, and some see me regularly over a period of months, years or just every now & again. We discuss what will work best for you at the assessment and keep things under review as we go.

 

Appointments are available weekdays and evenings, start times between 10am & 6:30pm (all subject to availability). I take a flexible approach to scheduling to support people for whom a regular 'same-time-each-week' commitment is difficult.
