I offer appointments within office hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays
March 2020 Important update: Due to social distancing guidelines, I am currently unable to take bookings for in-person therapy. However, I do offer online sessions.
Therapy is not a quick fix but is an ongoing commitment to your mental health. Therapy involves regular, usually weekly, sessions. I offer appointments within office hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
I work on a flexible premise of 6 sessions initially, with regular reviews to ensure we stay focused and to optimise progress.
Sessions usually last 60 minutes, with the fee payable at the end of each session by cash or BACS.
Please let me know asap if you cannot make your appointment. There is no cancellation fee if you cancel or reschedule with at least 48 hours’ notice.
Discretely located counselling room in Trinity Square, central Llandudno.
Your first session
People often feel nervous coming to a therapist for the first time. They are concerned that they won't know where to start or don't know how they will explain feelings or behaviour they can't make sense of themselves. The first session we may only be seeing the tip of the iceberg. Don't worry about giving a perfectly clear, coherent account immediately - I'm trained to help you explore your situation, and over the first couple of sessions we will decide together where to focus.
The first session is a chance for me to assess your needs and check that your problems are suitable for counselling. Equally importantly, you can ask questions and see if you would feel comfortable working with me. If working online together, it's a chance to talk you through how this will work and ensure you feel comfortable working with the technology.
I would also explain to you our Counselling Agreement. This document is considered good practice within counselling as it sets out both client and counsellor rights and responsibilities. This helps you know what to expect, should you decide to work with me.
This first session is available at a reduced price and without pressure. If you then decide to commit to ongoing counselling, this involves regular, usually weekly, sessions.
First assessment session (60 minutes) £25
Reduced price, without commitment, for the initial session
Regular session (60 minutes) £50
A regular session - usually in the same weekly timeslot.
Extended regular session (90 minutes) £70
Longer sessions may be necessary for some Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
Late cancellation fee £20
A cancellation fee is payable for cancellations and re-scheduling made with less than 48 hours' notice. No fee is payable where more than 48 hours' notice given.
