I am happy to take referrals from individuals, a parent or carer; GPs and the NHS; voluntary or statutory services, or schools, colleges and universities.
Before starting your counselling with me, I will invite you to an initial meeting where we can look at what you want to explore. The initial meeting may take up to an hour and twenty minutes, this meeting is at a £45 flat fee. This offers you an opportunity to discuss any questions or worries you may have.
