My counselling practice is called Red Leaf Counselling
I offer a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment to help you explore whatever difficulties you are experiencing or aspects of your life that you may wish to change. In addition to my private practice I also from time to time work as a school counsellor and with young adults between 13 to 18 years.
My counselling practice is located in a quiet private setting in Aller, near Langport in Somerset, and is easily accessible from Langport, Taunton, Bridgwater, Yeovil, Street, Glastonbury and surrounding areas

You will start with an initial 50-minute consultation in order for us to discuss how counselling may benefit you and for me to answer any questions you may have. This offers us each an opportunity to decide if we are happy to continue.
Subsequent sessions will also last for 50 minutes.
The fee for each session is £45 although some concessions may apply.
The overall number of sessions will depend on your particular needs and the pace you are comfortable to work at. We can discuss this when we first meet and review on a regular basis.
All sessions take place in Aller, in a quiet and private location that is easily accessible.
