Individual sessions last 50 minutes and cost £45.
Sessions are usually weekly and some come for a few weeks, others' months, or even longer.
If you choose to undertake long-term therapy the cost can be substantial and should be considered carefully.
What To Expect In A First Online Session
Once you have made the first contact, we will arrange an initial phone to discuss any questions you may have and for me to assess if I am the right person for you. After this, we will arrange the first assessment session and I will forward you any paperwork and contracts to complete.
The first session is an opportunity for you to tell me about yourself, your background history, talk about what is going on for you and what you hope to get from coming.
No therapy takes place at this stage and if I feel that I am not the right person to help you I will talk this through with you.
During this session, you can arrange further sessions and we would sign an agreement to work together.
Location of Sessions
I am currently working online via Zoom and on the telephone.
My In-Person work is based in Newcastle upon Tyne and North Tyneside.
The counselling rooms are accessed via a staircase and there is on-street and paid parking in the surrounding areas.
Please contact me if you need further access information.
It is important to note that counselling and psychotherapy are generally recognised as beneficial but sometimes this isn't always the case.
Choosing a counsellor or psychotherapist can be a big decision and it is important to feel that the person you choose is right for you.
