Gavin Conn MBACP, BSc (Hons)
During our collaborative work together you will experience the help and support that counselling provides.
The chances are, you have come to my page having already thought that counselling might be helpful. You may come with a strong focus of the issues at hand, for example anxiety, feeling sad, relationship issues or have a sense of something not being right in your world but not sure of the words to explain this. You may come because someone else has suggested it, such as friends, family or employers.
This non-judgemental collaboration is for you to explore and uncover the thoughts, reactions and the feelings that you live with.
You can call me or email me, whichever form of contact you feel comfortable with. You are free to ask me any questions and from that make a decision as to whether you would like to arrange a meeting either face-to-face or by Skype.
Before calling, think about the practical aspect. For example, have to hand a few dates and times that would suit you (evenings and weekend appointments available). I will note these and check room availability. I will then email or call (as you prefer) with confirmation.
The phone calls and emails are confidential. Please let me know if it is ok to leave a message.
Fees, Location, Ethics
Each therapy session lasts fifty minutes. The first meeting is £30 and £60 thereafter. Some appointments at a concession rate are available for students, low waged/unemployed and NHS staff. Please do mention concessions and I will be able to let you know if any slots are available at a reduced rate.
The practice for face-to-face sessions is on the edge of Islington, King's Cross and Clerkenwell. The address is provided when booking an appointment. Alternatively, sessions can be arranged via Skype.
I work within an Ethical Framework laid down by my governing body, The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy which I will discuss with you at the start of the session. At the end of the session we discuss going forward and this forms the contract for the therapy sessions.
