Send Dean a Message.

By sending a message via this form, you’ll be able to get in contact with me (Dean Richardson) directly.

It takes about a week for us to set up our first counselling session together.

If you’re in a hurry (“must meet tomorrow”) then it’s likely that I’m not providing the service you’re expecting. I do not provide any form of “emergency” counselling service; instead consider contacting The Samaritans (telephone free: 116 123) or other helpline if you must talk with someone straight away.

If you believe you’ve understood the services I’m offering, and you’d like to make contact to set up a first session, please use my contact form below…

Contact Form.

    Waiting lists may be available for unlisted times.

    IMPORTANT: Counselling is not an emergency service. Contact The Samaritans if you need immediate support.

    If you are making arrangements for someone else, read my policy on this.

    Appointments for Counselling.

    Skype / Zoom Video Counselling

    : Private Counselling over Zoom and Skype Covid-19 Tiers, National Lockdown, Self-Isolating & Shielding (January 2021): the balance of risks and rewards continue to argue against reopening my practice's Face-to-Face service. Skype / Zoom Video Counselling Services continue uneffected, however (click for Video Services @ Havant Counselling details).

    My Skype/Video appointments are Mondays & Thursdays (~noon to 9pm) and Wednesdays (~noon to 4pm). Having agreed on a weekly session day/time this stays with us until we have completed our work (or there’s a need to change).

    Decide on your preferred Weekly Day & Time.

    Refer to the table (below) when you make Contact with Dean. It shows the weekly appointments that are currently available.

    Weekly session lengths are 50 minutes (by default) but can also be of up to 90 minutes when you prefer.

    Counselling Appointments Available

    Waiting lists may be available for unlisted times.

    Popular Counselling Appointments are chosen firstTimes shown in red are regularly the first to be booked.

    Counselling sessions are (at a minimum) weekly, last for 50 minutes, and on the same day and time each week. 

    There are options for you to meet with your counsellor more than once a week.

    There are options for you to choose 90 minute sessions too. 

    (Unfortunately my regular-counselling-sessions approach does not accommodate shift-workers very well).

    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 (payable online via card or bank transfer, in person using cash, credit & debit cards or cheque [made out to Dean Richardson]).

    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.
