Jack Newton MBACP
I have a broad range of experience working with adults and young people, all with different reasons for wanting to access counselling. I am able to offer sessions in counselling rooms in Northamptonshire as well as Ecotherapy and home visits.
How Might Counselling Help
Counselling itself isn't a cure, it is an arena where healing and change can take place.
Counselling Assessment & Process
The first time we meet is an opportunity for us to discuss why you wish to access counselling and how counselling might help. The relationship between the client and counsellor is paramount in effective therapy, and so we must both feel that I am the right counsellor for you. After the initial meeting, if we both agree to proceed, we will agree a mutually convenient date and time to meet each week for a 50 minute session. Initially it can be beneficial to meet weekly, but other options, such as fortnightly and monthly might also be considered.
Throughout the counselling process, we will review your original aims of counselling and you can assess whether counselling is meeting your needs and whether you wish to continue. You are free to end counselling at any time, but I would always recommend having a planned ending.
Home visits may be beneficial for a range of reasons and currently I am able to visit clients within a 20 mile radius of Thrapston, Northamptonshire, but I hope to be able to increase this in the future. The benefit of a home visit is increased if there is a suitable room in which to meet, with minimal distractions. If in any doubt then please contact me to discuss.
Single Session Interventions
A single 'one off' session can give you the time and space to talk about specific problems and consider your future plans. After an initial single session, you might decide that you would like on-going sessions. Any additional sessions can be discussed and agreed and might include, either time limited (6-12 sessions) or longer term.
Single sessions may be either 90 or 120 minutes duration.
Not all counselling sessions have to take place in a counselling room or your home. Ecotherapy is a formal type of therapeutic intervention, which involves being in nature. Please contact me if you would like further information

I offer a range of therapeutic interventions and so the fees may vary depending on the type of intervention, whether I am visiting you, or if you are meeting me at one of the office locations. I am aware that the cost of counselling can be a barrier to preventing someone from accessing therapy and so concessions are available based on individual circumstances. Please contact me for further information.
