APPOINTMENT INFORMATION & FEES
I understand that some of us can have busy lives and making time to see a counsellor can be difficult; with that in mind I am available for counselling appointments in the evenings from 5:30pm right up until 8:30pm, subject to availability.
Session length and appointment times
Sessions last for 50 minutes for both couples and individuals.
There is the option to extend couples sessions to 80 minutes which
can be discussed in your session if you are finding 50 minutes

The centre is approximately 5 minutes walk from Harold Wood

How to pay
Payment is preferably taken by cash, but other options are available. I can accept payment via direct bank transfer and using Barclaycard Pingit, however, payment via these methods must be taken at the beginning of the session, so please mention before your appointment if you would like to pay by direct bank transfer or Pingit.
In your initial assessment I will ask you for some background information about yourself, your circumstances and the issue(s) that has brought you to see me.
It may sound obvious, but it can be helpful to think about how you might answer the question 'what has brought you to counselling?' before attending.
If you wish to cancel an appointment, for any reason, I will require 24 hours advance notice to avoid cancellation charges. If you cancel your appointment on the day, the session fee will still be owed and you will be required to settle this fee at your next session.
In the event that I need to cancel your appointment for any reason I will give notice as soon as possible. If you have block booked your sessions you will be offered the option of coming in at the next available slot, or rescheduling for the following week.
