How different am I from other counsellors?


Distinctly Private…

I only work in my Hampshire private counselling practices. I don’t work for the NHS, I don’t require your doctor refers you, and I’m not tied to insurance companies nor EAPs, some of whom require reports to be submitted.

When you choose to work with me, what you share with me stays with me.

No GP Referral…

Being a fully qualified, insured and registered counsellor / psychotherapist, you can come straight to me without a GP referral.

Plus: unlike counsellors in training organisations and some charities, I’m qualified to perform the initial assessment session with you; you won’t be referred to another counsellor after meeting me.

I’m dedicated to helping you make an informed decision about if counselling with me could assist you.

On time…

Unlike, say, GP appointments I guarantee that every one of our sessions will begin… and end… on time.

No waiting for delayed appointments, or having a thought that someone before you seems to be getting more time.

Frank, not Evasive…

Some counselling websites (with their candles, oceanic views & tree blossom) could be seen to imply counselling as being a peaceful walk in the park. I’d ask you: how does your recovery from rape, your guilt with a fatal car accident, or your struggles with your sexuality feel? Probably not peaceful.

So, for those dealing with the more serious of life matters, I take a frank, open and respectful approach to your counselling. We can talk about all of the horror and difficulties that you cannot talk about elsewhere. And we’ll go at your pace.

Making an appointment for your first counselling session is easy. You’re not committing to further sessions after the first if you don’t wish to, neither. We’ll discuss further sessions if we both agree working together seems helpful.

Simply CONTACT ME saying when you’d like to meet (choose from my my available appointments). I will confirm that the appointment is still available, and will reserve it for us. Once I’ve confirmed our appointment, prepare to send me your £30 refundable deposit, which confirms and secures our first appointment together. We will then meet for our initial, one-off, let’s-see-how-this-goes session (sometimes called an assessment for counselling).

There is no obligation to continue past the first session if you don’t wish to. If we both find that the session was helpful we will arrange to meet weekly (same time, day and place as the first appointment) until our work is done (or done enough to end counselling…).
