About me

We recognize that at times life can be difficult. We can all face ups and downs and have difficult situations and strong reactions. Sometimes these can leave us feeling insecure, worthless, defeated, insignificant, distressed and sometimes hopeless, and we need someone to help us to find our way through. The Potter’s Wheel Counselling Room can help by providing a supportive, non-judgmental place for you to explore your situation and a safe place to talk and be heard whilst you consider alternative perspectives and make informed choices.

Fees

Sessions:

A free initial assessment session of between half an hour to three quarters of an hour will be arranged to discuss the counselling process. I will explore with you your reasons for seeking counselling and the suitability of The Potter’s Wheel Counselling Room to meet your individual needs, and if you as the client feel comfortable to proceed with this service.

Subsequent sessions are one hour in length on a weekly basis. Each person’s journey is different and the length of time taken to progress through the counselling process can vary considerably depending on the need, and the issues being addressed. You may want a general listening ear or have a more specific focus. Whatever the reason for counselling, commitment to the process and your well being is assured by The Potter’s Wheel Counselling Room.

Fees:

Each counselling session will cost £40 per hour and will be payable at the beginning of each session in either cash or can be paid by BACS.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
