Getting Started

I provide counselling and psychotherapy services from private therapy rooms in Harrogate town centre and Leeds city centre.

Initial Consultation and Pricing

Following an initial enquiry, I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation made by appointment. The telephone consultation allows me to gain some insight into what you are looking for from therapy and to take any necessary contact information. The consultation will enable you to ask any questions about the service and explore the possibilities of our working together.

All future sessions are fifty minutes and my fees are £50, payable by the end of each session by cash or debit card. BACS transfers are available as a method of payment and should be paid before your session.

The appropriate number of sessions is entirely up to you as work needs to be completed in your own time frame. I am happy to discuss options to meet your individual needs.

Telephone and video counselling are available upon request. I use a secure online video conferencing link for this. All telephone and video counselling sessions are fifty minutes long and are £50 payable by BACS prior to the session.

“Overcoming difficulties leads to courage, self-respect and knowing yourself.”

The first counselling session together

If after our telephone consultation you feel you would like to arrange our first session together, we will initially look at the counselling agreement before starting the counselling. The counselling agreement sets out clear expectations and professional boundaries so that we may work safely and ethically together. You will get a signed copy of the agreement which you can take away, allowing you to check over again and ask any further questions in our follow-up session. The counselling agreement is not a commitment to counselling sessions but an agreed way of working within the therapeutic relationship.

Location

I provide counselling and psychotherapy services from private therapy rooms in Harrogate town centre and Leeds city centre. All venues are designated buildings for counselling work and provide a safe, confidential and comfortable space. I work from two different venues in Harrogate. Rooms are located in the town centre a short walk from the station and additionally off the Skipton Road between Starbeck and Knaresborough. Both of these venues have nearby parking. The room I use in Leeds is located on Park Square, a short walk from the city centre and train station but also with nearby parking.
