What is the price of a counselling session?
How can I pay?
You can pay in cash at the sessions, or by electronic funds transfer prior to each session.
Do I need a referral?

How many sessions will I need?
This will depend on your individual circumstances. Simply reaching out for support in itself makes some people feel better. Counselling requires a few sessions before clients start to gain sustainable improvements. After 6 sessions we will jointly assess whether there is a need for further support.
Do I need to do anything in preparation for the therapy?
After your initial contact, I will email you a Client Intake Form for completion and return prior to our first meeting.
What happens during a counselling session?
I use a person-centred approach which focuses on the client being able to develop a greater understanding of self in an environment which allows them to resolve their own problems. My aim is to establish a therapeutic relationship with the client which promotes self-esteem, authenticity and actualisation in their life, and help them use their inner strengths.
I believe people are capable and autonomous, with the ability to resolve their difficulties, realise their potential, and transform their lives in positive ways.
