Sue Gibbs BA (Hons), Dip. Psych. MBACP (Accred)
People seek counselling and psychotherapy for many different reasons. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental, safe and reliable setting in which to explore your difficulties.
Meeting regularly in my private consulting room, together we can explore your issues and your response to them so that they can be understood and managed.
Sessions last 50 minutes, the work can be short-term (an agreed period of weeks/months) or long-term and open-ended. Sessions are available on weekdays and can be either once a week, twice a week or three times per week.

The first step is an initial assessment meeting and this can be arranged either by email or over the telephone. Initial meetings are seventy-five minutes. Other on-going sessions are fifty minutes.
Current Fees: £85 initial assessment meeting
£55 ongoing sessions
I review my fees each year.
I am sometimes asked if I will consider a low-fee arrangement due to on-going or temporary financial difficulties. This can be discussed at the initial meeting and, if I have a low-fee space available, this may be agreed subject to a commitment to attend two or three times per week for a couple of years.
