Unfortunately, for many, there are times during life when it’s hard to cope. This might be for many reasons but whatever place you find yourself it can become difficult to find a way forward.

The initial assessment session is free of charge and will last usually no more than 30-40 minutes. Please note that this is not a counselling session but a time in which to talk to each other and discuss whether you feel that counselling might be helpful for you.
All single counselling sessions are currently £30 for 50 minutes, fees may be revised annually.
If you would like to book multiple sessions in advance, at any point when working together, a discount will be agreed. The full payment will be payable at the beginning of these sessions, this is not refundable.
Payments can be made by cash, cheque or by bank transfer on the day of the counselling.
Concessions may be available dependant on circumstances e.g. students, please ask.
