How much does it cost?
Each session is £50.
How long is each counselling session?
A counselling session lasts for fifty minutes.
Where are you located?
I practice from the comfortable rooms at the Therapy Centre, Church St, off London St in, central Reading (see the map provided). It is close to the Oracle Shopping Centre and the Queens Road car parks.There are good public transport options for those not coming by car.
Where is best to park?
There are several parking options nearby. The nearest is the Saxon court car park on Church St. The Oracle, and Queens Road car parks are a short walk away, and there is further on-road parking on London St.
What times are you available?
I currently see clients Monday to Friday, daytimes and evenings.
What happens in each session?
The first session is an opportunity for both of us to decide if I'm the right counsellor for you, I'll talk through what you can expect, explaining things like our confidentiality agreement. The counselling itself is your time and space to talk about whatever feels important to you. You can read more about my style of counselling here.
How regularly will we meet?
Normally we would meet once a week, and we can continue to meet for as long as you feel is necessary. This might mean only one or two sessions, or a longer commitment - it's really up to you. I will review our time together at regular intervals to ensure that your counselling sessions are meeting your needs.
What should I do on arrival?
At the Therapy Centre please ring the doorbell marked 'Therapy' and myself or someone else will let you into the waiting area. Take a seat and I'll be with you when we're ready to begin. Please aim to arrive no more than 5 minutes before our session - this helps ensure the confidentiality of previous clients.
Any other questions?
Please feel free to get in contact if you have any other questions about practicalities, or counselling in general.
