FIRST APPOINTMENT

Our initial meeting provides us with the opportunity to explore whether counselling is right for you, for you to get an idea of how I work and for us to decide if we will proceed to work together.

We can arrange to meet face to face at my consulting rooms, by VSee if we plan to work online, or by phone. There is no obligation for you to book any subsequent appointment(s) unless you wish to do so, the decision is entirely yours.

CANCELLATION POLICY

If you need to cancel an appointment, a minimum of 48 hours notice is required. If you are unable to provide this notice, the session may be charged in full.

ACCESS

My counselling room is situated on the ground floor and is fully accessible.
