So, you're ready to begin your counselling journey?

Healthy potted plants

The first step is booking in your free 15 minute exploratory phone call.

To start this process you can book in your free, no pressure 15 minute introductory call on my online booking system through the link below:

Alternatively you can email me or phone me to book this in if you prefer.

Please note that I currently work within my practice Monday - Friday and will always try to respond to your enquiry within 2 working days.

This is a chance for us to get to meet each other and see if the way I work suits you at this time. During this we will discuss what you are looking for from therapy and the context of this. You can ask questions you may have.

We can book your first session or if you need more time to think about your counselling journey, you can get in touch when you're ready to begin.

When you are happy to book in your first counselling session, we will confirm your platform or location of choice and timings.

I will then send you client setup documents and ask you to sign a counselling agreement in person or online. Whilst this may sound formal, our agreement outlines the boundaries of our work in order to keep it safe and supportive, and our signing of it is symbolic that we are both committing to your therapy together.

In our first counselling session together, we will go over any further questions you may have, including any around our counselling agreement, and we will go through in more detail your history and background details.

This then becomes your regular weekly session time.
