How do I book an appointment?
You can call or text me on 07810 646 303 or email me on info@SBCP.uk. I may not be able to respond immediately but will get back to you as soon as I can. I usually request we schedule a 15 minute phonecall prior to booking a first session in, which gives us an opportunity to see if we can work together.
How much do you charge and how I pay?
I charge £55 per 50 minute session. Payment can made by cash, cheque, card or bank transfer.
What happens duing my first session?
You may feel anxious prior to your first session, this is perfectly normal and something a lot of people experience (including myself when I first went to see a counsellor!). Your first session is an opportunity for us to see if we can work together and discuss what your expectations and worries about therapy are. Attending a first session does not mean you are tied into attending therapy with me for the next however many weeks or months. You are free to end at any time if you feel uncomfortable, don't feel the therapy is working for you or if you simply feel you are not ready yet. I'd very much welcome we explore this together during a session.
Can I speak to you outside of our sessions if I'm struggling?
If you need to speak to someone urgently, please contact your GP, NHS 111 or the Samaritans on 116 123. Unfortunately I am generally unable to offer support outside of our scheduled sessions.
