Send Dean a Message.

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

Free initial email exchange: whilst this is not free online counselling, this initial email exchange invites you to briefly describe your problems and then get back a reply from me. This can help you decide if you wish to meet me in person (which will incur my fee). I’ll review your message and reply back via email.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…

    NOTICE: Dean is not available from Friday 10th December to Monday 3rd January (inclusive), though he may still be available to respond to enquiries and emails.

    Waiting lists are available for unavailable 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 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".
