My counselling room is based between Thame and Long Crendon on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border. There is ample parking and a ground floor room for clients that require level access.
I work with long term and short term clients, each session lasts for 1 hour and the fee is £45 per session.
On making contact I invite you to attend an initial assessment session to explain the counselling service and agree our contract for working together. We record key parts of your history and make time to establish if this is the correct service for you and consider what you feel about working with me. We will have up to 1 hour for the assessment process and the fee is £25.
You may then choose a few sessions to talk through something in particular or prefer to attend sessions on a regular basis.
I believe in making counselling as accessible to all as I am able to and with this in mind I have a few places that I can offer at a reduced rate per session, please contact me for details.
Cancellations of session with less than 24 hours notice will incur half the fee.
The content of our counselling sessions are confidential unless there are serious concerns that there is a risk to your safety or the safety of others. It is important that you are aware of the legal and ethical boundaries of counselling. If necessary I would be obliged to make contact with your GP or other relevant professional.
NOTES & RECORD KEEPING

There is evidence to support the benefit of making contact with someone when you are distressed, now is the moment to think things through before acting on your thoughts.
