Assessment session £45: If you feel you would like us to work together, the second session which lasts for 60 minutes, is an assessment of your needs and making sure you get the most out of the counselling process.

It will help you get a feeling for what counselling involves and together we can decide the best way forward. It's also an opportunity to discuss the practicalities such as day, time, fees and commitment. I will keep you fully informed regarding therapeutic approach and confidentiality and we will take a look at the counselling agreement together .
