Couple therapy £50 per session in Shoreham and Hove.
My availability is flexible.
In addition to10a.m - 6pm in Hove and Shoreham, I have some Saturday morning appointments in Shoreham, and other times may possibly be available on request.
I always try to see new clients for a 50 minute initial assessment as soon as it is required. This is usually within a week and sometimes may be possible within 48hours as I try to keep a session available for urgent appointments.
My initial assessment appointment helps you to ascertain whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you, and able to best meet your needs.
I offer a specific number of sessions, or open ended sessions are available.
My response to any message via phone or email is usually within the same day either to make an appointment, or if there is a question regarding therapy you might wish to ask me.
My Shoreham location is close to Shoreham High Street and the Train station. It is served by a very comprehensive bus service.There is also free parking.
Southwick, Lancing, Portslade, Worthing, Mileoak and Steyning are within easy reach.
The Hove location, is 5 minutes walk from the train station, and right on the bus route through Hove.
There are parking meters outside in The Drive, and the location is close to a very reasonably priced car park opposite Hove town hall in Norton Rd or a free 2 hour Tesco car park at the bottom of George Street.This location is convieniant also for Brighton and Portslade.
