How to make contact

The best way to make contact is to call me on 01442864708. We can then briefly discuss what sort of issues you are seeking help with. It gives you a chance to hear my voice, which may help you decide whether you could feel at ease; also, it gives me a chance to get an idea what you are looking for and whether I might be able to be of help to you.

If I am unable to answer your call then please leave your name and a telephone number, plus a convenient time for me to call you back.

If you are still at the stage of gathering information and have not yet decided whether to take the step of making contact with a view to arranging a first consultation, then you can email me at



FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Q. How much does it cost?

A. We will discuss the fees at our first meeting. It is important that we agree a fee which is mutually acceptable.


Q.How do I know if you are the right person for me to work with?

A.The best guide to knowing whether a practitioner is good for you to work with is your own sense of being at ease. You can already get a sense of that when you make your first contact by telephone and that is why it is important to have that personal contact, rather than email.

When you start your sessions, at first you may feel a bit anxious and cautious and that is quite common. If however, after a few sessions you still feel very uneasy about the practitioner, or if the environment does not feel safe to you, it is best to discuss this openly. This may settle the issue for you. If it does not, then perhaps you need to reconsider your options.


Q. Will you talk to others about what I tell you about myself?

A. Everything you tell me remains completely confidential. The concept of Confidentiality is central to the psychotherapeutic and counselling ethos.


Q. Do you have experience of working with the issues I bring?

A. I will tell you when you first contact me on the telephone, whether I have experience of working with the issues you mention. If I dont think I am the right person for you then I may be able to refer you to a more suitable resource.


Q. How long will it take?

A. For open-ended psychotherapy the honest answer is that I do not know how long it will take. This is because I do not know you, nor do I know how you will make use of the sessions.
When thinking about ending a good guide to follow is your own sense of how far you have come through the work we have done and how much further you want to go.

It is useful to regularly evaluate the work that we do.

For short-term, focused counselling, a number of sessions are agreed at the start. This can vary from 6 to 13 sessions. Even so, I have no way of knowing beforehand where you will be with your issues at the end of that time and I will discuss this with you at our first meeting. It will also be part of the evaluation we will do at the end of the sessions.
