What to Expect Counselling sessions take place in my therapy room in my practice in Hastings, which is in a confidential and tranquil environment with off road parking, with local bus routes nearby. At first it is often difficult to think about starting counselling, but it does become easier.  Sometimes there can be an initial anxiety as the appointment approaches, but once you arrive, my therapy room is a safe space for you, in a peaceful and welcoming environment.  The aim is not to give you advice but to increase your understanding and help you explore options you may not have considered, and different ways of coping.  Counselling offers you a confidential therapeutic relationship in a safe environment where you meet regularly, and where the trust and the empathy of the relationship is more important than the theoretical approach.  Counselling sessions are usually on a weekly basis and last fifty minutes. I charge £40 for 50 minutes, this can be negotiable in relation to circumstances, and I have limited places at a reduced fee at £25.  Please ask for further details if you are a student or are on a low income. Terms of business are discussed during our initial consultation. I offer an Introductory Consultation at which we can discuss your needs, if it is then mutually agreed that we work together, we can agree a time to meet for our weekly sessions.  This Introductory Consultation will also last 50 minutes and will be charged at the same rate.  …Having an Introductory Consultation, can be an opportunity you can give yourself to explore the possibility of counselling, so that you can then make an informed decision as to if you feel this might be helpful and right for you.  I would encourage you to take the first step… Please ring me on 0800 046 1410 or 07598 732777 to make an appointment or alternatively you can email me
