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.

    Due to a busy time few appointments are currently available. Cases do conclude from time to time and you're welcome to reserve your preferred appointments for when they become available (get in touch…).

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

    ⚠️ Are you making arrangements for someone else? Please read my important policy on third-party inquiries.

    Counselling Appointments Available

    Due to a busy time few appointments are currently available. Cases do conclude from time to time and you're welcome to reserve your preferred appointments for when they become available (get in touch…).

    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 up to 50 minutes, and on the same day/time each week. 

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

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

    (Shift-workers: my regular weekly approach & limited hours may not be able to accommodate your shift pattern very well).

    Fees are due before or on the day of the session (payable online via banking app transfer, credit/debit card or PayPal, in person using cash, card or cheque [made out to Dean Richardson]).

    Ending counselling: Our time together continues for as long (or as brief) as we both think it's being helpful… and when one of us thinks "maybe that's enough" we can begin to look at bringing our work to a close (it can be helpful to bring up the idea of ending counselling to talk it through, just in case our work has brought up something difficult like avoiding difficult feelings, can't say something, acting out etc). Then we'll plan how we'd like to say "goodbye".
