Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have lived and worked abroad in several countries and I have experience working with cross-cultural couples, or individuals and couples re-locating or re-located. I include English/Irish or English/Scottish here.
I work with couples experiencing difficulties co-parenting post separation or divorce.
I have experience working with older couples.
I have experience working with bereavement and loss, including divorce and separation.
I base my fees on means, starting with individuals from £65, and couples from £70 up to £120.
I always work with 1-3 assessment sessions which last 1 hour 15 minutes so that we can explore what you are bringing. I charge more for an assessment session as it takes longer than a regular 50 minute session.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me or leave me a voice mail, I would be happy to talk with you more. There is more information on my website; www.victoriatherapy.co.uk
If you would like to meet, I suggest 1-3 initial meetings to explore whether we can work together before you commit to weekly therapy. These sessions will be slightly longer than an average session so that I can form a good picture of what you are bringing which will form the basis of our work together.
