Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I also undertake expert witness work for medico-legal cases, mainly one incident trauma cases.
My fees are £90 an hour but I can offer a one off 30 minute phone call as initial contact to ensure an assessment is indicated at a cost of £30.
I work at three different clinics over the week (York as well as the above), but work every day and later late afternoon / early evening in Easingwold for after school appointments.
To get things started please either email, text or ring. We can discuss what happens with the next step or just book in the assessment session. An assessment appointment aims to identify what intervention would be most helpful or indeed if there are NHS services you could access. Many people like weekly or fortnightly sessions in the first instance but I am flexible and can fit in with individual's needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
