Where do you work from?
I work from counselling rooms in central Chorlton. There is nearby parking and it has close to main bus and Metrolink routes.
My working hours are weekday daytimes and Monday and Tuesday evenings - please get in contact for more details.
Do you do sessions online?
Yes I see a lot of clients via online video – please get in touch if this is something you would like.
What happens after contacting me?
I will email you back and arrange a time for us to have a phone conversation. There is no charge for this. I will take some personal details and we can talk briefly about some of the reasons you are considering counselling, when and where we are both available to meet, and I can answer any questions or concerns you may have. This gives us both a chance to get to know each other a little and decide if we would like to work together. Either during or after the phone call you can decide whether you would like to continue with counselling and we can arrange a date and location for the first session.
What happens at the first session?
I’ll meet you in reception (or call you if we’re meeting online). If there’s any paperwork we haven’t completed over email we can finish that off before we start. I will hold a safe space where you can talk about what it is you want to talk about. From this, we can build a therapeutic relationship where we can build up trust and you can process what you need to. After 50 minutes we finish and if you wish you can book more sessions.
Do you do home visits?
I don’t usually do home visits but if there is a particular reason why you’re not able to make it to counselling rooms and you live in the Greater Manchester area then get in touch and we can talk about it.
Are there changing facilities available?
Please ask if this is something you are interested in and I will try to arrange this if possible.
Is my personal data safe with you?
