Each session lasts 1 hour with sessions conducted in Lytham St Annes and Blackpool (depending on room availability). I try to make each session as relaxed and enjoyable as possible so there is usually a kettle boiled ready for a tea or coffee.
The model of counselling I use is an integrative model which means that I recognise the client’s uniqueness and adapt my counselling to suit the individual’s/couples needs.
My commitment to client’s is for as long as they require my help and therefore counselling is open ended and the client decides how may sessions they require. In order to make sure the number of sessions is never more than is required the number of sessions will be reviewed on a regular basis.
As you may be uncertain about counselling or whether I am the counsellor you need the first session is a free of charge, no obligation ‘Get to Know You’ session where counselling is explained more fully and you are given the chance to begin to tell your story and become accustomed to counselling.
I understand peoples work, family and financial needs so attempt to be as flexible as possible to meet the client’s needs when making appointments.
In order to make counselling available to all, I work on an ‘afford to pay’ basis rather than a fixed fee, which is negotiable and discussed during the first session.
