Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a session cost?

Each session costs £50.00, and the fee is payable on the day.

You can make payments in cash or via a bank transfer.

I’ll give you my bank details in our first meeting if you prefer a bank transfer.

How can I book an appointment?

Just contact me via:

If you phone and I can’t answer the call, please, leave me your name, email address and phone number. Feel free to ask me any questions too. Your message will stay confidential as I am the only person using this phone.

However you contact me, I'll get back to you within 24 hours on weekdays and offer you various time slots for an initial chat. If none of the time slots work for you, please, let me know so we can look for alternatives.

The initial chat can be in person, on Skype or on the phone.

Once we agree on a time that suits us both, I'll email you your booking confirmation, my address and parking details. (Btw, parking is easy and free in the area.)

Do you offer online or hybrid counselling?

Yes, I do.

Please let me know if you prefer online or a combination of online and in-person counselling when you first contact me.

The booking process is the same as with face-to-face counselling. Once we have found a time and day that works for both of us for an initial chat, I’ll email you a Skype link, and we’re good to go.

Is counselling confidential?

What you say in counselling is confidential and what we discuss stays between us. We will discuss the few exceptions in our first meeting.

How many sessions do I need?

This is your choice. You are the one in the driving seat when it comes to deciding how long you want to carry on and when you want to finish. I won’t rush you into ending before you feel ready, and I won’t drag it on beyond what you want for yourself.

The number of sessions you choose to have can depend on a lot of variables: the level of distress you're experiencing, your personal history, your finances, your other commitments... too many to list. But one thing is certain: barring some unexpected circumstances (for example, an illness), I will NOT suddenly stop our journey together. I'll be there for you for as long as you require counselling, and not a minute longer.

Do you work in the morning/evening/weekend etc.?

These are the times and days when I work:

Tuesdays: 9.00 – 17.00

Wednesdays: 8.00 – 17.30

Thursdays: 9.00 – 17.00

Where is your therapy practice located?

It’s near the centre of Bodmin, Cornwall.

Once you book your first appointment, I will email you the address, maps and a picture of the entrance – so you know exactly where to go.

Parking is easy and free.

Clients are welcome from the surrounding areas of Lostwithiel, St Austell, Liskeard, Newquay, Camelford, Saltash, Launceston, Truro and Wadebridge.

What happens during the first session?

We meet and decide whether we are a good fit for each other. We'll have a chat about what brings you to counselling and what you’d like to achieve. It's a great opportunity for you to ask questions and see whether you feel relaxed and comfortable talking to me.

Get in touch

Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about how counselling works, or to arrange an initial meeting. This enables us to discuss why you are considering coming to counselling, whether it could be helpful for you and whether I am the right therapist to help.

You can also call me on +44 7432560307 if you would prefer to speak to me first. Please leave a message if I can't answer the phone when you call, and I'll get back to you.

My practice is located in Bodmin, Cornwall. I see clients from Bodmin and the surrounding areas of Lostwithiel, St Austell, Liskeard, Newquay, Camelford, Saltash, Launceston, Truro and Wadebridge. I will provide location details when we arrange our counselling sessions.
