Individual Counselling and
Individual counselling and psychotherapy sessions are a safe place to talk in confidence and explore your concerns in more depth.
During your sessions I will support you with this exploration and I will help facilitate change within the boundaries of your wishes.
Sessions are offered, face to face, in a quiet and comfortable counselling room based in Streetly, Sutton Coldfield.
Sessions are also available online (video) or by telephone to enable further accessibility (session fees below).
Before starting regular sessions, it is important to have an assessment session to see how we feel about working together.
In an assessment session, we will spend 50 minutes together. During this time, we will talk about the reasons you decided to access therapy and what you would like to gain, change or do with your sessions.
We will also agree a contract of working which outlines what you can expect from me as your counsellor, and outlining confidentiality, data protection etc.
If we decide to go ahead after the initial assessment session, we will discuss the frequency of your sessions and book in your next appointment.
Flexible appointments are available Monday to Friday.
Fees for appointments (including assessment appointments) are £50.
Sessions informed by Dialectical Behaviour therapy (DBT) are £60.
30 minute sessions are offered to children (under 16) or anyone requiring adjustments to make sessions more accessible. These sessions start at £35.
*concessions may be offered to students who are financially limited at £40 per session (limited slots available).
