Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. 
 
Carl R. Rogers 
 
However good we are, however correctly we seek to lead our lives, tragedies do occur. We can blame others, look for justification, imagine how our lives would have been different without them. But none of that matters: they have happened, and that is that. From this point on, it is necessary that we review our own lives, overcome fear, and begin the process of reconstruction.

We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.

Everyone may not be good, but there's always something good in everyone. Never judge anyone shortly because every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.

Appointments and Fees 
Making an Appointment 
After an initial conversation by email or phone we will arrange an appointment as soon as we can. 
The First Session 
 
The first session is for you to tell me about yourself, and to look at the issues you would like to explore. You can ask any questions you may have about how I work or the about the therapy process in general. 
 
The initial session should give us a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions. It has taken a great deal of courage to seek counselling and it is important that you feel that you have made the right choice and that I am the right person for you. 
 
 
Once we decide to work together I would usually suggest an initial commitment of 6 sessions, (but for some people, longer or shorter term therapy is what they need). 
 
At that point we will review the work together and decide to either come to an ending, or to continue with ongoing sessions. The initial 6 sessions can often help decide whether short term work or working on a more open ended basis is appropriate for you. 
Further Sessions and General Information 
 
Sessions last one hour and usually take place on a weekly basis and at a regular time. Some clients who have had a series of regular sessions then like to come back for ‘top-up’ or ‘MOT’ counselling on an ad hoc basis and I am always happy to fit them in. 
Fees | £45 per session 
 
The amount of the initial session is the same as for ongoing sessions. Fees are paid on a weekly basis by cash or cheque - whichever is most convenient for you. For an initial chat please give me a call on 07539 393 686 or fill out the form on the contact me page.
