Discussing experiences can be difficult. The effect of these experiences play out in everyday life, in both conscious and unconscious ways. They can interfere with how content we feel and stop us being able to live our lives to the fullest. Sometimes it can feel as if talking about these things can bring back unwanted thoughts, memories and images. It is important to know that you are in a safe and supportive environment, so that thoughts and feelings can be explored. My aim is to provide this so that we can work together and find the best way forward for you.

Sessions

Our initial session will be to explore what has brought you to therapy and how we could work together to meet your needs. I offer weekly sessions as this is important in the continuity of the work. Sessions usually last 50 minutes. I offer a variety of ways of working which can sometimes take longer. If needed, longer sessions can be arranged with prior notice. I offer both individual therapy and couples counselling.

Sessions are held at Boston House, Grove Business Park, Downsview Road, Wantage, OX12 9FF.

During the pandemic sessions may comprise of a mixture of online sessions as well as face-to-face sessions depending on the current local rules and restrictions. Under certain circumstances walking sessions are also offered.

All information is confidential in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. 

Fees

Sessions cost £55 for individual therapy and £75 for couples.

 

Initially fees can be paid by cash or bank transfer at the beginning of the session. If therapy is long term monthly invoices will be sent out at the end of the month.

48 hours notice is required for cancellations, otherwise the full session fee will apply.
