Being a Private Counselling practice you get to choose your preferred day and time for your weekly counselling appointment. You can always change your mind later, but if you prefer your appointment can stay with you until you complete your therapy.


Appointments for Counselling.

I offer counselling sessions on Mondays and Thursdays (~5pm until 9pm) and Wednesdays (~noon to 4pm). After we have agreed a day & time for your weekly counselling appointment this day & time will stay with you until the end of our work.

When beginning counselling for the first time you can choose your preferred session day(s) and time(s) from the following table:-

Choose your Weekly Day & Time.

NOTICE: Due to the sitation regarding the Coronavirus, I have suspended all face-to-face counselling sessions for the foreseeable future.

I am currently preparing to reintroduce my Skype Video-based Counselling Service (which I originally designed in the 2000s / basically I'm dotting the i's, crossing the t's now). Details of this will be available shortly.

Option 1: Skype/Video Counselling.

If you would like to begin counselling via Skype Video (within the next couple of weeks), please get in contact noting my current availability (below). I'll be in touch when I have appropriate procedures and advice in place.

Option 2: Face-to-Face Counselling.

If you would like to begin counselling face-to-face when the Government advises us that it has become safe for us to do so (current estimate: May 2020), please get in contact noting my current availability (below). I'll be in touch when I begin to resume my office practice.

Available Appointments:

  • Mondays: 7pm or 8pm.
  • Wednesdays: afternoons possibly, but not yet confirmed.
  • Thursdays: 5pm or 6pm.
  • Tuesdays, Fridays & Weekends: not available.

Waiting lists may be available for unlisted times.

NOTICE: Dean is not available from Monday 6th April to Monday 13th April (inclusive).

Times in red are the most popular, and usually the first to go.

Counselling sessions are (at a minimum) weekly, last for 50 minutes, and on the same day and time each week. You may wish to come more than once a week. You may also choose a 90 minute session (by prior arrangement).  Unfortunately I'm unable to support shift-workers.

Our counselling work together continues for as long (or as brief) as we both think it's helpful… and then we'll look at bringing our work to a close.

Fees are due on the day of the session (cash, cheque [made out to Dean Richardson], credit & debit cards).

Ending counselling: it can be helpful to bring up the idea of ending counselling first. Sometimes the need to end may be a mask for something else (avoiding difficult feelings, can't say something, acting out etc) and it can be helpful to distinguish, together, what ending may mean in our work. We'll talk about endings with some thought and some planning on how you might like to say goodbye.
