If you would like to talk about online or in person counselling you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form below.
An initial consultation would take place free of charge, either via telephone, webcam or email, to discuss the suitability of counselling for you. I am aware many people find telephoning increases their anxiety, and all arrangements can take place via email if you wish.
Sessions usually last for 50 minutes and cost between £20 and £60 for individuals and £30 to £80 for couples. I believe passionately in improving access to therapy 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 students of counselling who have to undertake mandatory therapy, sessions cost £25. I find working with those making their first steps into a career which I have found so rewarding an incredibly uplifiting experience.
For in person counselling I work from therapy rooms in Stocksfield, Northumberland, or central Newcastle.
