WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
THINK • TALK • TRUST
Please get in touch by clicking on one of the links to my email or phone me with your details and I will get back to you as quickly as I can.
We will arrange a time to meet for an assessment, when you can tell me why you have decided to come to counselling and what you hope to achieve from our time together.
An assessment gives us the opportunity to get to know each other a little bit and to decide if we can work together to form a therapeutic relationship. I will also talk through our contract which will include aspects such as the confidentiality agreement, information storage and supervision.
When and where?
I am able to offer a variety of options for us to work together, due to Covd-19 I have been working with clients over the telephone or via zoom, however I am able to safely see clients in person, if they would prefer, as my counselling room is large enough to comply with government guidelines re: social distancing. My therapy room is at Bedford Heights on Brickhill Drive, Bedford. where there is on-site parking and easy access for wheelchairs.
When you arrive, you will need to report in to reception and wait for me to come and greet you at our appointment time. If you arrive early, there is seating in the reception area where ALL visitors must sign in.
I practice open-ended counselling for individuals, meeting weekly at a regular time. Sessions are paid in advance and each session lasts for 50 minutes.
Sessions can be a little bit more spread out for couples, as we may meet weekly or fortnightly. The work is more short-term, typically 8-10 sessions in total.
Group meetings will be advertised throughout the year and will follow a theme. For example, we might cover the menopause, uniting women at a similar stage in their lives to share experiences and create a support group.
