What to Expect

We'd start with an initial assessment for me to be aware of the reason(s) for you (or your child) to want counselling and the nature of difficulties, as well as for you to ask questions.

Sessions take place in North Kingston (please see Covid-19 restrictions below)

I'll also talk through the process of counselling.


The only exemption being that if you are a danger to yourself or others in which case I would have to break confidentiality as per BACP therapeutic guidelines and Ethical Framework. This is standard practice and is part of my responsibility to you. I work within BACP's Ethical Framework found here.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Please note each session lasts 50 minutes
