What to expect

Process

We will need at least one intial session which will give you the chance to experience me as a therapist, to have a sense of my therapeutic setting, and to tell me a little about yourself, including what brings you to therapy at this point in your life.  We will have the opportunity to decide whether we are best placed to work effectively together.  There is no commitment at this stage.

 

We will have the opportunity to discuss whether your needs are such that short term work may suffice, or whether longer term therapy may be needed.

This session, and all future sessions should you wish to continue, are 50 minutes, and will be held at the same time and place every week. 

Setting

For face-to-face sessions, I work in a quiet, private therapy room in my home in Nailsworth, pictured below, which has a separate entrance.

I also offer remote sessions, an option that has become more accessible and desirable since we have started to experience restrictions due to COVID-19.  I have found working in this way to be very effective, and some may still choose this.  I am well placed to provide guidelines for making the most of remote sessions; please let me know if you are interested in hearing more about creating your own 'safe space' from which to join these sessions.  Remote work can be by telephone, or on Zoom. 

Fees

Initial session £25.

Going forwards all sessions will be charged at £40.
