Further Information

What happens at my 1st appointment?
This 1st introductory session is to start to get to know one another and decide if we wish to work together and lasts 60 minutes. I may discuss with you whether or not I am the right person for you to see and may suggest alternative options for you. If we decide to work together then we can set an appointment to begin therapy. I will also go over my terms of the business contract. This will enable you to decide whether to proceed or not.

What happens next?
The appointment to begin therapy is usually set for the following week. Counsellors offer weekly/fortnightly therapy, each session lasts 60 minutes. This session will begin to complete an in depth psychological assessment and develop the therapeutic relationship. Together we will further identify your reasons for seeking therapy and how we will work together in a therapeutic contract to gain insight into your conscious and unconscious process and how this may have influenced your decisions you have made about yourself and others. Once these decisions are brought into awareness they can be changed and resolved.

When are appointments available?
Monday & Wednesday (afternoons/evenings) and I offer my Healing and massage sessions on Fridays & Saturdays only.

What fees do you charge?
The 1st introductory session is £30, subsequent sessions are £45 for each 60 minute appointment. Payment is required at each session by cash or cheque please.

What if I need to cancel?
Please give me at least 24 hours (more if possible) notice if you cannot attend. Short notice cancellation will require you to pay for the session if you do not attend.

How many sessions will I need?
I am sure you can understand that this is a difficult question to answer without a consultation with me. Decisions about yourself, other people and the wider world are made in childhood and have had a significant impact on how you live in the present. Individuals respond differently about how and what they want to change; the more fundamental, severe, long standing and deep-rooted the decision the longer this may take to resolve. Your early decisions are individual to you and I will work with you to support you to change and resolve the decisions impacting on your well-being. Please dont hesitate to discuss this with me in more detail.

Please also feel free to write down any other questions you have and bring this with you to your 1st appointment. You can also find me on Facebook or Instagram under Release Therapies, email me at or
