We can arrange a consultation on a agreed time and date. This will take place at my private practice which is conveniently based near in the centre of York, near the station.
The Healing Clinic
I also work as a counsellor for The healing Clinic in the centre of York opposite the museum gardens, located in The Club museum, YO1 7DN. For further information you can go to www.thehealingclinic.co.uk or do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
This initial meeting gives us the opportunity to explore what has brought you to therapy and what you hope to gain from it. This also gives you a chance to bring any questions or concerns that you may have about therapy and the way we may work together. I work on a sliding scale based on what you can afford, and can offer some reduced fee places for people on low income and students.
What To Expect
Sessions take place at the same time, on the same day every week and are 50 minutes in duration. You are free to make an ending at any time, but I usually suggest that we take one or two sessions to round up the work, and this gives you the opportunity to explore further options.
My practice offers individual one to one sessions or I can also work with Skype. I see people from all walks of life and provide a safe and private setting in which to explore your problems. Counselling can offer you the freedom to find a way forward so that you can live your life in a fuller and more satisfying way. It can be one of the ways to overcome difficulties and make the changes you may be seeking.
I work in a way, which means the therapy is individually tailored to suit your needs, and includes both long term in depth psychotherapeutic work as well as short term solution focused counselling. I believe that it is important that you choose someone to work with that you feel comfortable. I offer an initial appointment, free of charge, to explore whether what I provide will best suit your needs.
