If you would like to talk about online or in person counselling you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07442808719 or use the contact form below. If I am not available just leave a message letting me know when its convenient to call you back and I will within 24 hours.
An initial consultation would take place free of charge, either via telephone or email, to discuss the suitability of counselling for you, and counselling generally. I am aware many people find telephoning increases their anxiety, and all arrangements can take place via email.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and cost between £20 and £50 for individuals and £30 to £70 for couples. I believe passionately in improving access to counselling for those groups for whom cost is so often a barrier. Therefore I do not ask for proof of income, and largely clients determine for themselves what they can afford. Some clients have also generously offered to subsidise places for those on low income, so if you are worried about cost please, still get in touch to discuss what might work for you. If you would like to contribute towards a bursary for a GRSD client on a low income, please also get in touch.
For in person counselling I work from offices located in local libraries in the Tyne Valley, which many people find meets their need for discretion, and convenience.
