I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation. I also offer an initial full 50 minute online video session for all clients at a discounted rate of £25. This allows time for us to get to know each other, explore what you want to get out of counselling and whether I am the right person for you to work with. We will discuss any particular needs or requirements prior to working outdoors together – if this is your chosen way of working. There is no commitment to continue after the initial session. It is important that you feel comfortable and able to work with me.
Outdoor counselling sessions take place in natural spaces, such as parks and woodlands. You can read more about the locations we can work in here.
Sessions last 50 minutes at a cost of £50 per session. I also offer longer 90 minute sessions at £70 per session. We can walk the whole session or sit and talk, or a combination of both, and this may vary from week to week.
I will be guided by how much you would like to incorporate nature into the session. There is also flexibility for you to choose where you want to go in the session or I am happy to lead the route.
Before working outdoors, I will check with you what to do in the case of bad weather, etc. Please also note outdoor sessions are only available during daylight hours. You can check out my other frequently asked questions here.
Face to face counselling
Face to face sessions take place at The Counselling Cabin – my purpose-built garden counselling room located in Ravenshead. You can take a virtual tour of the space here.
Sessions last 50 minutes and the price per session is £50. I work with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, bereavement and relationship issues.
As an integrative counsellor I can also offer creative techniques such as using objects or drawing as I appreciate sometimes it can be difficult to put your thoughts and feelings into words.
Online video counselling
I use Google Meet for online video sessions. From a laptop or desktop computer, you can simply click a link with no need to sign in or download any software. All data is encrypted and no-one can access the meeting without both an invite and being approved to join by me.
Although we will not physically be together in a natural environment, I can incorporate nature into sessions through the use of metaphor and mindfulness activities. You may choose to sit in an outdoor space such as a garden during sessions if you wish. The price per 50 minute session is £50.
I have a limited number of reduced fee sessions available to those experiencing financial hardship – please contact me to enquire.
