Booking a session

Initial Consultation

With the present circumstances around Covid-19 I undertake a free 25 minute telephone consultation with all potential clients, for us to explore what you need and expect from therapy and to decide if the way I work is suitable for you.

The focus of this consultation is for you to tell me about yourself, and what has brought you to counselling. I will also talk about my approach and answer any questions you may have about how I work.

It is an opportunity for you to explore whether or not you think I am the right counsellor for you, as well as giving me the chance to ensure that I feel confident I can offer you what you want and need from a counsellor. There is no pressure to commit to working with me at the end of the consultation. You may feel ready to proceed to book in future sessions, or you may decide a different style of counselling may suit your need better. It is totally your decision.

Location

I offer counselling from a dedicated room at my home, in a quiet road in Thame, South Oxfordshire. It is easily accessible by bus, there is always parking available and there are toilet facilities provided. Access to the room is up two steps and unfortunately currently unsuitable for wheelchair users.

I have followed government guidance and implemented Covid-19 safety procedures. The room offers a well ventilated space to meet. I ensure that it, and the toilet facilities are thoroughly cleaned prior to each client arriving. Hand Sanitiser is available. I am happy to wear a mask or face shield when we meet and we can determine what you prefer at the start of working together.
